One of the most reliable approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those which should not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also avoid the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting
If you order a Linux shared website hosting service
from our company, you shall be able to see comprehensive traffic statistics for all of your Internet sites and if you notice that a large amount of the visits to each of them aren't legitimate, you are able to block the IP addresses which have generated the most traffic using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is extremely simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address that you'd like to block and save the change. All the addresses that you have blacklisted shall appear inside the exact same section of the CP, so that you can always remove any of them and permit it to access your site again. You are able to block whole IP ranges via the tool as well - you just have to leave one or two octets from the address blank. As an example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199.
