If you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your site and if after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other web servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any sort of article where this kind of an option is offered. The fact is that, this is something rather common lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Naturally, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all hosting accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with a couple of clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them shall take simply a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range also. This could be completed 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 basically have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us and you would like to block one or a few IP addresses sooner or later, you can benefit from the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we have provided with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you'll be able to block particular IPs or entire ranges, if required. All you'll have to do is pick any of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking needs to be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder which is part of the website, and then input the IP address you want to block. For an IP range, you just have to omit the last octet or the last 2 octets of the address with regards to the size of the network you want to block. Each of the addresses that you have restricted will be listed in the exact same section and if you wish to whitelist any of them, you will be able to do it with a mouse click anytime.
