If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random sites looking to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where such an option is available. Regrettably, this is something relatively frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through 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. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting provide an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to limit the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do so with only a few mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. As you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and enter the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, this shall 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 may unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you need to block one or numerous IP addresses eventually, you may benefit from the easy-to-use blocking tool, that we've provided with our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With only several clicks, you shall be able to block particular IPs or whole ranges, if necessary. All you will need to do is select any of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, select if the blocking should be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that's part of the Internet site, and then enter the IP address you want to block. For an IP range, you only need to omit the last octet or the last 2 octets of the address with regards to the size of the network that you want to block. All the addresses you have restricted shall be listed within the very same section and if you wish to whitelist any one of them, you shall be able to do it with only a mouse click at any time.
