One of the most effective approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which shouldn't be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

As soon as you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and enter the IP address which should be blocked.

If you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.
