Once in a while you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and online traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. Such things may drastically undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, which may result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are real.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, because you shall use an intuitive interface - you just need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range also. This can be performed 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 simply have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with our semi-dedicated packages, will allow you to solve the matter with unwanted traffic very efficiently. It includes an IP blocking tool in which you can add IP addresses with just a few clicks. All domains and subdomains that you have inside the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you simply have to pick the one you need and then type the IP address which has to be blocked. If you would like to block a whole range, a C-class network for instance, you simply need to type in the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That will block all 254 addresses, so you will not need to type in them manually. Because all the IPs which you include in this section shall be listed, you could very easily unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button associated with the given IP.
