If you notice a big increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations around the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites aiming to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this type of an option is offered. The fact is that, that's something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will be unable to access your site in any way. Obviously, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our shared service provide an IP blocking tool, so if you want to restrict the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with a few clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is quite simple to use. Once you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to block IP addresses effortlessly and stop the unwanted traffic to any Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, since we offer a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, which is provided with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have not addressed this sort of issues in the past, you will not have any difficulties, as our tool includes a very user-friendly interface. When you navigate to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you will find a full list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added in the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is pick the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then enter the IP in the box below. The change will take effect immediately, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is equally easy.
