Once in a while you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to site articles. This type of things may significantly undermine your work, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, so as to ensure that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud hosting accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with just several clicks. No coding skills are necessary, because you shall use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added inside the same section and whitelisting any of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range also. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
