In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your website and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random websites looking to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this type of an option is provided. However, that is something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your site in any way. Obviously, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting account with our company and you wish to block one or a number of IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that's included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Using a really simple interface, you could prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to perform this is to log in 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 enter the IP address. You'll not have to do anything complex if you wish to block an entire network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed in the same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with a click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to block IP addresses easily and stop the undesirable traffic to any Internet site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, because we offer a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that is our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have not tackled this kind of problems in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, because our tool features a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you go to the IP blocking section of the CP, you shall find a full list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added within the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type the IP inside the box below. The change shall take effect at once, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally quick.
