Every now and then you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to shady websites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may greatly undermine your hard work, because no one likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server in which your site is hosted, that can result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, so as to make sure that the visits to your site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you would like to block one or several IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a rather simple interface, you'll be able to stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete that is to log in to your Control Panel, to go to the IP Blocking section, to pick a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You won't need to do anything complicated if you'd like to block an entire network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the very same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to block IP addresses with ease and stop the undesirable traffic to any Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with us, since we offer you a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that's included with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have never dealt with this type of problems in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, since our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. As you visit the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you'll find a full list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you need to do to block an IP address is choose the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type in the IP within the box below. The change shall take effect right away, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is just as uncomplicated.
