Every now and then you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to suspicious sites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things may significantly undermine your work, as no one likes to visit a site with many fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server where your site is hosted, which may result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your site are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting
Our Linux cloud web hosting service feature an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your websites, you'll be able to do this with only several mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block whole networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this'll 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 simply a click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll enable you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your sites with justseveral mouse clicks and you won't have any difficulties to accomplish that even if this is your first website hosting account. As soon as you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will simply have to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within a box which you'll 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 type in 123.123. and do not enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
