If you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your site and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas all over the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random sites aiming to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this kind of an option is made available. The fact is that, this is something rather common in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your site in any way. Needless to say, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our Linux hosting plans provide an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to restrict the access to your sites, it shall be able to do this with just a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is very simple to use. As soon as you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you'll just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks as well, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to block IP addresses with ease and stop the unwelcome traffic to any Internet site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with us, as we offer a very easy-to-use tool to do that, which is included with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have not dealt with such problems in the past, you won't have any difficulties, because our tool has a very user-friendly interface. When you visit 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 needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP in the box below. The change shall take effect at once, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is equally quick.
