Once in a while 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 produce fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things can significantly undermine your projects, as no one likes to visit a site with many fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which produce the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your website are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a rather simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to do this is to log inside to your CP, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to pick a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You will not have to do anything challenging if you'd like to block an entire network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed within the same exact section, so you'll be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Even if you haven't addressed this type of issues in the past, you won't have any difficulties, because our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. When you check out the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you will find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added in the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is pick the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP in the box below. The change will take effect immediately, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally uncomplicated.
