Occasionally you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and traffic. There are spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things may drastically undermine your hard work, as no one likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server where your website is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with just a couple of clicks. No coding abilities are required, because you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added inside the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range as well. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with simplyseveral mouse clicks and you shall not have any issues to achieve that even if that's your first web hosting account. Once you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just need to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type 123.123. and do not type anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
