If you see a considerable increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations around the world or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites attempting to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this kind of an option is available. Regrettably, that is something relatively frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your site in any way. Naturally, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting account with us and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that's incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a pretty simple interface, you could stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform this is to log inside to your CP, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to select a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You simply won't need to do anything difficult if you'd like to block a whole network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the full range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed inside the very same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the unwanted traffic to any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, as we offer you a very easy-to-use tool to do that, which is included with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have never dealt with such matters in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, as our tool has a very user-friendly interface. As you check out the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a full list of all the domains and subdomains you have added in the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP inside the box below. The change shall take effect at once, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is just as simple.
