Once in a while you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things may considerably undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server on which your site is hosted, which can result in the site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our hosting plans come with an IP blocking tool, so if you want to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do so with just a couple of clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is very simple to use. When you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and enter the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block entire networks also, so if you enter 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your Internet sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplya few clicks and you shall not have any difficulties to achieve that even if that is your first web hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll just need to select the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then type the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for an entire network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and do not enter anything within the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
