Blocked IP issues are one of the common support requests resolved by FastWebHost Support Techs. Every web hosting server will have a firewall which will monitor IP addresses for any suspected activity.
There are many symptoms and reasons for blocking your IP by firewall, here are few examples:
The most common symptom is the website owner reporting a “Connection timed out” error for Mail, Web, FTP or Control Panel services while the support team is able to access those services.
This usually happens in the following situations:
1) Your email client has a very low “mail check interval” settings.
2) The website owner failed to successfully authenticate in a mail, web, FTP or cPanel interface multiple times, leading the firewall to think it's a brute force attempt.
3) The web owner has an FTP client set with a very high number of simultaneous connections, causing the firewall to think the connection attempts is a denial of service attack.
4) A website update was interpreted as a hack attempt by the web application firewall (mod_security).
So whatever the reason for IP Block, you should get out of it. Right :)
