Every now and then you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to site articles. This type of things could considerably undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, which could result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting provide an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to restrict the access to your websites, you'll be able to do so with several clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's a breeze to use. Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you will just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your Internet sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with simply a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your sites with simplya couple of clicks and you will not have any troubles to accomplish that even if that's your first hosting account. When you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll just have to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you have to 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 server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
