Occasionally you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things may greatly undermine your hard work, as nobody likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, so as to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all cloud hosting accounts. It shall permit you to block addresses with simply a few clicks. No coding abilities are needed, because you shall use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a click. If you notice your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range too. This may 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 enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with onlya few clicks and you won't have any difficulties to do that even if that's your first web hosting account. When you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will just need to select the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be all set. To restrict the access for an entire network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not enter anything in 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.
