If you see a big increase in the traffic to your site and if after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites trying to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this kind of an option is offered. The fact is that, this is something quite frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will be unable to access your site in any way. Naturally, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages include an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to limit the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with simply a couple of clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is a breeze to use. As soon as you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you'll just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block entire networks as well, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to block IP addresses with ease and stop the unwelcome traffic to any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, because we offer you a very easy-to-use tool to do that, that's offered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have not addressed this sort of problems in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, because our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. As you go to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you shall find a full list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you need to do to block an IP address is choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP inside the box below. The change shall take effect at once, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is just as simple.
