Occasionally you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. Such things can drastically undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server where your site is hosted, that could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all website hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with simply a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, because you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added inside the very same section and whitelisting each of them shall take only a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range as well. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
