One of the most effective approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you will also stay away from the chance of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

All it takes to perform this is to log within to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to choose a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You won't have to do anything challenging if you want to block a whole network - you will just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the exact same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with only a mouse click.
