In case you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other web servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random sites seeking to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this type of an option is available. Regrettably, that's something rather common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting account with us and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a rather simple interface, you can restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to perform that is to log inside to your CP, to visit the IP Blocking section, to pick a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You won't have to do anything challenging if you want to block an entire network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the very same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the unwanted traffic to any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, because we offer you a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that is part of our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you haven't addressed this sort of matters in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, because our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you check out the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains you have added within the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP inside the box below. The change will take effect right away, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is just as uncomplicated.
