Occasionally you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may greatly undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server in which your website is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, so as to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are real.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the innovative Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all web hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with several mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, because you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you'd like 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 simply a click. If you notice your site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range as well. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you just need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll allow you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your sites with onlya few clicks and you shall not have any troubles to accomplish that even if this is your first web hosting account. As soon as you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will simply have to pick the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To restrict the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and don't input 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.
