Once in a while you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to site articles. This kind of things can drastically undermine your projects, since no one likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server in which your site is hosted, which can result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud website hosting accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with several mouse clicks. No coding abilities are needed, due to the fact that you will use an intuitive interface - you need to simply select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input 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 only a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with our semi-dedicated plans, will allow you to solve the issue with unwanted traffic very easily. It features an IP blocking tool in which you can add IP addresses with just several clicks. All domains and subdomains which you have in the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you only need to select the one you need and then enter the IP address which needs to be blocked. If you would like to block a whole range, a C-class network for instance, you just need to type the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That will block all 254 addresses, so you shall not need to input them manually. Since all the IPs that you add in this section will be listed, you may easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button related to the given IP.
