One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also prevent the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

If you get a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you'll be able to see detailed traffic stats for all your Internet sites and if you notice that a large amount of the visits to any of them are not authentic, you may block the IP addresses which have generated the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is really simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address that you want to block and save the change. All the addresses which you have blacklisted shall appear in the exact same section of the Control Panel, so that you can always remove any of them and enable it to access your site again. You can block whole IP ranges using the tool as well - you just have 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.
