Every now and then you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. This type of things can considerably undermine your work, as no one likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server on which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's a breeze to use. As you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you'll just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks too, so if you enter 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. If you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with simplya couple of clicks and you shall not have any difficulties to achieve that even if that's your first website hosting account. When you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only need to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address in a box that you will see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for an entire network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and don't input anything in the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
