Occasionally you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things can drastically undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which produce the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you would like to block one or a few IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that's incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Using a very simple interface, you'll be able to restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to do this is to log in to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to select a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You simply won't have to do anything complicated if you would like to block a whole network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the full range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed in the very same section, so you'll be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with a mouse click.
