In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites trying to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this sort of an option is offered. The fact is that, that's something quite popular 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 Internet site in any way. Obviously, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting account with our company and you want to block one or several IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a pretty simple interface, you are able to stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to perform this is to log within to your CP, to visit the IP Blocking section, to choose a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You will not have to do anything difficult if you'd like to block a whole network - you will simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed in the exact same section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with just a click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to block IP addresses effortlessly and stop the undesirable traffic to any website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with us, considering the fact that we offer a very easy-to-use tool to do that, that is our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have not addressed this sort of matters in the past, you won't have any difficulties, as our tool has a very user-friendly interface. As you navigate to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you will find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added in the Hosted Domains section. All you have to do to block an IP address is pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type the IP within the box below. The change will take effect right away, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is equally quick.
