Occasionally you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things can greatly undermine your projects, simply because no one likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all cloud hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with a few clicks. No coding abilities are needed, since you will use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range as well. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, provided with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, will enable you to solve the problem with unwanted traffic very quickly and easily.

That will block all 254 addresses, so you shall not need to input them by hand. Considering that all the IPs you add in this section shall be listed, you may easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button relevant to the particular IP.
