Every now and then you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. Such things may greatly undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all website hosting
accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with only a few clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them shall take only a click. If you notice your website is being flooded by different IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range too. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124, you basically need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts come with a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with onlya few mouse clicks and you shall not have any troubles to achieve that even if that is your first hosting account. Once you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll just have to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address in a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't type in anything within the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
