Once in a while you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and website traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to site articles. This sort of things can drastically undermine your hard work, since no one likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server where your website is hosted, which may result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all cloud hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, since you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added within the same section and whitelisting any of them shall take only a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range as well. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you just need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your sites with onlya few mouse clicks and you won't have any problems to do that even if that's your first hosting account. As soon as you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will just have to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To limit the access for an entire network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type in 123.123. and don't input anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
