One of the most effective ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole nation. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number 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 shady IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you will also avoid the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Through a pretty simple interface, you could restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to perform this is to log in to your Control Panel, to go to the IP Blocking section, to choose a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You won't have to do anything complex if you would like to block a whole network - you'll just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the full range from to All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the very same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with only a click.
