One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also avoid the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you will just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks too, so if you type in 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites.
