From time to time you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. There are spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things could drastically undermine your hard work, as nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server on which your site is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

Our web hosting include an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to limit the access to your websites, you'll be able to do so with a couple of clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is a breeze to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and enter the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block entire networks also, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll allow you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with onlya few mouse clicks and you won't have any troubles to do that even if this is your first website hosting account. When you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only need to select the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not type anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
