Once in a while you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things could greatly undermine your hard work, as no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server on which your website is hosted, which could result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

If you purchase a Linux cloud web hosting from us, you shall be able to see detailed traffic statistics for all of your sites and if you notice that a large amount of the visits to any of them are not authentic, you may block the IP addresses that have created the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is extremely simple - pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type the IP address that you want to block and save the change. All the addresses that you have blacklisted will appear in the very same section of the Control Panel, so that you can always remove any of them and allow it to access your Internet site again. You are able to block whole IP ranges using the tool too - you just have to leave one or two octets from the address blank. For instance, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will permit you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with onlya few mouse clicks and you shall not have any issues to accomplish that even if this is your first hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only need to choose the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for an entire network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and do not type in 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.
