One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that should not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for a whole country. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also prevent the possibility of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting from us, you'll be able to see in depth traffic statistics for all your Internet sites and if you notice that a large amount of the visits to any of them are not real, you are able to block the IP addresses that have produced the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is quite simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type the IP address that you want to block and save the change. All of the addresses which you have blacklisted will show up inside the same exact section of the Control Panel, so you're able to always remove any of them and permit it to access your Internet site again. You can block entire IP ranges through the tool as well - you just need to leave 1 or 2 octets from the address blank. For example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.
