Once in a while you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things can drastically undermine your projects, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
Our Linux website hosting services come with an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do this with just several clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's super easy to use. As you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you will just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks too, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your Internet sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to block IP addresses effortlessly and stop the unwelcome traffic to any site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, because we provide a very easy-to-use tool to do that, that's included with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you haven't addressed this type of matters in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, because our tool features a very user-friendly interface. When you go to the IP blocking section of the CP, you shall find a full list of all the domains and subdomains you have added inside the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is select the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP inside the box below. The change will take effect immediately, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is just as easy.
