Once in a while you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things can considerably undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a website with many fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the innovative Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all shared hosting
accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you need to simply select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added inside the exact same section and whitelisting any of them shall take just a click. If you notice your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range too. This could be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124, you only have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts feature a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will enable you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with no more thana few mouse clicks and you will not have any problems to accomplish that even if this is your first website hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll just have to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type the IP address within a box which you'll see there and you will be all set. To restrict the access for an entire network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type in 123.123. and do not type anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
