If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your site and if after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any article where this type of an option is provided. Unfortunately, that's something quite frequent lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Of course, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a Linux shared web hosting service from us, you will be able to see detailed traffic statistics for all your sites and if you notice that a lot of the visits to each of them are not legitimate, you may block the IP addresses that have produced the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is really simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address that you would like to block and save the change. All the addresses that you've blacklisted shall appear inside the exact same section of the CP, allowing you to always remove any one of them and enable it to access your Internet site again. You'll be able to block whole IP ranges via the tool too - you just need to leave 1 or 2 octets from the address blank. For instance, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to block IP addresses easily and stop the undesirable traffic to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, since we offer you a very easy-to-use tool to do that, which is offered with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have never dealt with this type of problems in the past, you won't have any difficulties, considering that our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you navigate to the IP blocking section of the CP, you will find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added in the Hosted Domains section. All you have to do to block an IP address is select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP in the box below. The change will take effect right away, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is just as easy.
