From time to time you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. Such things can greatly undermine your projects, as no one likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server where your site is hosted, that could result in the site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared website hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with simply several mouse clicks. No coding abilities are needed, since you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range too. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with onlya couple of mouse clicks and you shall not have any problems to do that even if this is your first web hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will just need to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address in a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't type in anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
