In case you notice a major increase in the traffic to your site and if after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random websites trying to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this kind of an option is made available. Unfortunately, that is something relatively popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Obviously, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the innovative Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all hosting accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with just several mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, because you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added inside the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplyseveral mouse clicks and you won't have any problems to achieve that even if this is your first website hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only need to select the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for an entire network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not input anything in the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
