Every now and then you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may considerably undermine your projects, as nobody likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server on which your website is hosted, which can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or several IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a rather simple interface, you could stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete this is to log inside to your CP, to go to the IP Blocking section, to select a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You'll not have to do anything complicated if you'd like to block an entire network - you'll just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the entire range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed inside the same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.
