If you see a significant increase in the traffic to your website and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites aiming to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any sort of article where this type of an option is offered. Regrettably, that is something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our Linux cloud website hosting services feature an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with only several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and enter the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks also, so if you type in 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 want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the unwanted traffic to any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, considering the fact that we offer you a very easy-to-use tool to do that, that is included with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you haven't dealt with this sort of problems in the past, you will not have any difficulties, since our tool features a very user-friendly interface. Once you visit the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added within the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is choose the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type in the IP in the box below. The change will take effect straightaway, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally quick.
