One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that must not be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also stay away from the chance of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with just several mouse clicks. No coding abilities are needed, due to the fact that you shall use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range too. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168, you basically need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

That will block all 254 addresses, so you will not have to input them manually. Because all the IPs that you include in this section will be listed, you may very easily unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button associated with the given IP.
