Once in a while you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things can drastically undermine your projects, since no one likes to visit a website with many fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server where your Internet site is hosted, which can result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, so as to be certain that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all cloud web hosting accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with only a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added within the same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range too. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you just have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with simplyseveral clicks and you shall not have any difficulties to accomplish that even if that's your first web hosting account. When you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll simply have to pick the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then type the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and do not enter anything within the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
