What's IP blocking and what does it mean for website visitors? When is it useful?
One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that should not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you could limit the access for a whole state. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all cloud hosting accounts. It shall enable you to block addresses with just several clicks. No coding abilities are required, due to the fact that you shall use an intuitive interface - you need to simply pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added within the very same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range too. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11, you just need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
