One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also avoid the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or a few IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Through a very simple interface, you are able to stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete this is to log inside to your CP, to visit the IP Blocking section, to choose a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You'll not need to do anything challenging if you wish to block an entire network - you'll just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed inside the exact same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.
