One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for a whole nation. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

Once you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only need to pick the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank.
