If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas around the world or from other web servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites seeking to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this type of an option is provided. However, this is something quite frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Of course, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks also, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, will enable you to solve the problem with unwanted traffic very quickly and easily. It includes an IP blocking tool in which you can add IP addresses with several mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains which you have in the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just need to pick the one you need and then type the IP address which has to be blocked. If you want to block a whole range, a C-class network for example, you just have to type the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This will block all 254 addresses, so you shall not have to type in them manually. Since all the IPs that you include in this section shall be listed, you could easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button relevant to the given IP.
