From time to time you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and website traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. This sort of things could greatly undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a website with many fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, which can result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which produce the fake traffic, so as to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all cloud website hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with only several mouse clicks. No coding skills are needed, as you shall use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range also. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
