Occasionally you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things may drastically undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server where your Internet site is hosted, which can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are real.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

Our Linux web hosting come with an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your websites, you'll be able to do so with simply a few clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is very simple to use. Once you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you shall just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks also, so if you enter 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll enable you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with justseveral clicks and you won't have any troubles to achieve that even if that's your first hosting account. As soon as you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will just have to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To limit the access for an entire network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you enter 123.123. and don't type anything in the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
