One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that should not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also avoid the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

If you buy a shared hosting plan from our company, you shall be able to see detailed traffic stats for all your websites and if you notice that many of the visits to any of them aren't legitimate, you are able to block the IP addresses which have created the most traffic using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is very simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type the IP address you want to block and save the change. All of the addresses which you have blacklisted will appear in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you're able to always remove any one of them and allow it to access your website again. You'll be able to block entire IP ranges using the tool too - you simply need to leave one or two octets from the address blank. For instance, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.
