One of the most efficient methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for an entire country. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

Once you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you will just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will allow you to block entire networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with a click from the same section.
