If you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random websites trying to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this type of an option is available. The fact is that, that is something relatively popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your site in any way. Of course, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans provide an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your sites, you will be able to do so with just a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is very simple to use. When you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you shall just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will allow you to block whole networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with our semi-dedicated plans, will enable you to solve the problem with unwanted traffic very easily and quickly. It incorporates an IP blocking tool in which you could add IP addresses with just a few clicks. All domains and subdomains you have in the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just need to select the one you need and then input the IP address that has to be blocked. If you wish to block a whole range, a C-class network for example, you simply need to input the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This will block all 254 addresses, so you shall not need to input them manually. Considering that all the IPs which you include in this section shall be listed, you could very easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button related to the given IP.
