Occasionally you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. Such things could significantly undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit a website with many fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, that can result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting come with an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to limit the access to your websites, you will be able to do this with simply several mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's very easy to use. As soon as you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you shall just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and input the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplya few clicks and you shall not have any difficulties to do that even if this is your first hosting account. Once you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only need to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type 123.123. and don't type anything within the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
