Occasionally you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and site traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. This type of things may significantly undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a site with many fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting account with us and you wish to block one or a number of IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a rather simple interface, you are able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform that is to log inside to your CP, to check out the IP Blocking section, to pick a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You'll not have to do anything difficult if you want to block an entire network - you'll just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed inside the very same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a click.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the unwanted traffic to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, because we offer a very easy-to-use tool to do that, that's offered with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have never dealt with such issues in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, considering that our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. When you go to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you shall find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added inside the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP in the box below. The change will take effect immediately, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is equally uncomplicated.
