Occasionally you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things could drastically undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server on which your site is hosted, which could result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all cloud web hosting accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, because you'll use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range also. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, 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

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, will enable you to solve the problem with unwanted traffic very quickly and easily. It incorporates an IP blocking tool where you may add IP addresses with just several mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains which you have within the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you only have to choose the one you need and then type the IP address which has to be blocked. If you would like to block a whole range, a C-class network for example, you just need to enter the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This shall block all 254 addresses, so you'll not have to input them manually. Considering that all the IPs you include in this section will be listed, you could very easily unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button relevant to the given IP.
