If you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this sort of an option is provided. Regrettably, that's something relatively popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Of course, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all cloud hosting accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with just several clicks. No coding abilities are needed, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose 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 you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range also. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want 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

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will enable you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with no more thanseveral clicks and you won't have any difficulties to accomplish that even if this is your first hosting account. As soon as you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just need to choose the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be all set. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type 123.123. and don't enter anything within the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
