Occasionally you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and website traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. This type of things could greatly undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, that could result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your site are real.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
come with an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to restrict the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with only a few clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that's super easy to use. Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you will just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks as well, so if you enter 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 from accessing your sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts include a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with onlyseveral clicks and you will not have any issues to do that even if this is your first hosting account. Once you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only need to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you input 123.123. and do not enter anything in the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
