One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the chance of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the unwelcome traffic to any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, as we offer you a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that is offered with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you haven't addressed this kind of matters in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, because our tool features a very user-friendly interface. When you visit the IP blocking section of the CP, you shall find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains you have added in the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP within the box below. The change shall take effect straightaway, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally easy.
