From time to time you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to site articles. This type of things may significantly undermine your projects, as no one likes to visit an Internet site with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server where your site is hosted, that could result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all website hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with a couple of clicks. No coding abilities are required, since you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range also. This could be completed 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 basically have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your sites with simplyseveral clicks and you won't have any difficulties to achieve that even if that is your first website hosting account. As soon as you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only have to select the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and don't type anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
