In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas around the world or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random sites trying to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where such an option is available. Unfortunately, that is something relatively common lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could 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 certain countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting account with us and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is included in our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a really simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete that is to log within to your CP, to visit the IP Blocking section, to choose a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You won't need 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 within the exact same section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to block IP addresses effortlessly and stop the unwelcome traffic to any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, because we provide a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that's included with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you haven't dealt with this type of problems in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, as our tool has a very user-friendly interface. When you go to the IP blocking section of the CP, you shall find a full list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you need to do to block an IP address is pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type the IP inside the box below. The change shall take effect straightaway, 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.
