Once in a while you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and online traffic. There are spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. Such things could greatly undermine your hard work, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server where your website is hosted, which could result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your website are real.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud service
include an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do this with only a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is very simple to use. When you log in and go to 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 that should be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks as well, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 from accessing your Internet sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts feature a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with no more thana couple of clicks and you will not have any troubles to do that even if that is your first website hosting account. As soon as you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will only have to pick the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then type the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To restrict the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and do not enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
