Occasionally you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things may significantly undermine your work, as no one likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, which could result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting from our company, you shall be able to see in depth traffic stats for all of your websites and if you notice that a large amount of the visits to any of them aren't authentic, you can block the IP addresses that have created the most traffic through our IP Blocking tool. The interface is incredibly simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type the IP address you want to block and save the change. All of the addresses you have blacklisted will appear inside the very same section of the Control Panel, so you're able to always remove any one of them and permit it to access your Internet site again. You could block entire IP ranges via the tool as well - you just need to leave one or two octets from the address blank. As an example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with simplyseveral mouse clicks and you shall not have any issues to do that even if this is your first website hosting account. Once you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just have to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address within a box that you will 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 enter 123.123. and do not enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
