One of the most reliable approaches to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also prevent the chance of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our Linux cloud web hosting come with an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to restrict the access to your sites, you will be able to do so with just a few mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. As you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you will just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type in the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block whole networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
