Find out about IP blocking, precisely what it signifies and just how and when it’s best to utilize it.
One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that mustn't be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do this. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also steer clear of the chance of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

No coding skills are required, since you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses you have added inside the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a click. If you notice your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range also. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11, you just need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
