If you see a major increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites aiming to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this kind of an option is made available. The fact is that, this is something rather popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Needless to say, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans include an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to limit the access to your websites, you'll be able to do this with only several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is very simple to use. As you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block entire networks as well, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with simply a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you wish to block one or numerous IP addresses sooner or later, you may use the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we have included in our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With simply several clicks, you'll be able to block individual IPs or entire ranges, if needed. All you'll have to do is pick out any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, select if the blocking needs to be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder which is part of the Internet site, and then enter the IP address that you'd like to block. For an IP range, you just have to omit the last octet or the last 2 octets of the address based on the size of the network that you want to block. Each of the addresses which you have restricted will be listed within the exact same section and if you would like to whitelist any one of them, you shall be able to do it with simply a mouse click at any time.
