In case you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your website and in case after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites attempting to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this kind of an option is offered. The fact is that, that's something quite popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your site in any way. Needless to say, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all shared website hosting
accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, because you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added inside the very same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range as well. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206, you only have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to block IP addresses easily and stop the unwanted traffic to any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, as we provide a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that is provided with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have never dealt with this type of matters in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, considering that our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. Once you check out the IP blocking section of the CP, you will find a full list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you need to do to block an IP address is choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type the IP within the box below. The change will take effect at once, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally quick.
