From time to time you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. Such things could drastically undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our Linux cloud hosting provide an IP blocking tool, so if you want to restrict the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with simply a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. Once you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you shall just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type in the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block entire networks as well, 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 would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with simplya couple of mouse clicks and you won't have any issues to accomplish that even if that is your first hosting account. When you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only need to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for an entire network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and do not enter anything in 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.
