Occasionally you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There are spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to site articles. This type of things could significantly undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all web hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with just a couple of clicks. No coding skills are required, as you'll use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added in the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range too. This can be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with justseveral clicks and you will not have any troubles to do that even if that's your first web hosting account. When you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will simply have to select the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To restrict the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and do not input anything within the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
