Once in a while you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. 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 site articles. This kind of things can considerably undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are real.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all web hosting
accounts. It shall enable you to block addresses with a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are needed, since you shall use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a click. If you notice your website is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range also. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206, you simply need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts feature a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with onlya few clicks and you will not have any troubles to do that even if that's your first web hosting account. As soon as you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only need to choose the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be all set. To restrict the access for an entire network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type 123.123. and don't type anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
