If you see a large increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places all over the world or from other web servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites looking to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this kind of an option is offered. Regrettably, that's something quite common lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will not be able to access your website in any way. Obviously, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our shared services feature an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to limit the access to your sites, it shall be able to do this with simply several mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that's quite simple to use. When you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you will just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type in the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will allow you to block entire networks as well, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Even if you have not tackled such issues in the past, you won't have any difficulties, because our tool includes a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you visit the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a full list of all the domains and subdomains you have added within the Hosted Domains section. All you need to do to block an IP address is pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type in the IP within the box below. The change shall take effect immediately, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally easy.
