From time to time you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and online traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. Such things could considerably undermine your work, because nobody likes to visit a website with many fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which can result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud web hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with simply several clicks. No coding skills are required, because you'll use an intuitive interface - you just need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a click. If you notice your website is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range as well. This can be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll permit you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with justa few clicks and you shall not have any difficulties to achieve that even if that is your first web hosting account. Once you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only need to choose the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To limit 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 don't enter anything within the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
