One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that mustn't be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

Once you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will simply have to choose the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you input 123.123. and don't input anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
