Occasionally you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and online traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This type of things can greatly undermine your work, because nobody likes to visit a website with countless fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server where your site is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Through a rather simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete this is to log within to your Control Panel, to check out the IP Blocking section, to choose a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You'll not have to do anything challenging if you wish to block an entire network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the full range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the exact same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with justseveral clicks and you will not have any troubles to achieve that even if this is your first website hosting account. When you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only have to choose the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type in 123.123. and do not input anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
