Every now and then you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things may drastically undermine your projects, because no one likes to visit a site with countless 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 site is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud website hosting accounts. It will allow you to block addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, due to the fact that you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range too. This can be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from to, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
