One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. For instance, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

All it takes to perform that is to log inside to your CP, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to choose a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address.

For instance, if you input 123.123. and do not input anything within the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between and
