Occasionally you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things can drastically undermine your projects, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server where your site is hosted, which may result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your website are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

Our Linux web hosting provide an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to limit the access to your sites, it shall be able to do this with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is quite simple to use. When you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks as well, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with simply a click from the same section.
