Occasionally you might 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 generate fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things could significantly undermine your work, as no one likes to visit a website with many fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, that could result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you wish to block one or a number of IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a rather simple interface, you can restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform this is to log inside to your CP, to check out the IP Blocking section, to pick a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You won't need to do anything complex if you'd 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 shall block the entire range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed within the same section, so you will be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you need to block one or a number of IP addresses sooner or later, you may use the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we've supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks, you'll be able to block certain IPs or entire ranges, if required. All you'll have to do is pick any of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking should be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that's part of the website, and then enter the IP address that you'd like to block. For an IP range, you only need to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address with regards to the size of the network which you want to block. Each of the addresses you have restricted will be listed within the very same section and if you want to whitelist any of them, you'll be able to do it with only a click whenever you want.
