Occasionally you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to website articles. This type of things could drastically undermine your hard work, as no one likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server on which your site is hosted, which could result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, which is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a rather simple interface, you could restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete that is to log in to your Control Panel, to visit the IP Blocking section, to choose 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 difficult if you wish to block an entire network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed within the very same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to block IP addresses effortlessly and stop the unwanted traffic to any website hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, since we offer you a very easy-to-use tool to do that, that's part of our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you haven't tackled this type of matters in the past, you shall not have any difficulties, considering that our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. When you navigate to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you'll find a full list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added in the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP inside the box below. The change will take effect immediately, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is equally uncomplicated.
