In case you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the world or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any sort of article where this sort of an option is provided. Regrettably, that's something relatively frequent lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Hosting

If you have a hosting account with us and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Through a very simple interface, you can prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete this is to log within to your Control Panel, to visit the IP Blocking section, to pick a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You'll not have to do anything complex if you would like to block an entire network - you'll just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the entire range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the very same section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to block IP addresses easily and stop the unwelcome traffic to any site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us, since we offer you a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, which is our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have not dealt with this sort of matters in the past, you shall not have any difficulties, because our tool features a very user-friendly interface. When you visit the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you will find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added in the Hosted Domains section. All you need to do to block an IP address is select the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP in 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 equally easy.
