Every now and then you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to site articles. Such things can greatly undermine your hard work, because no one likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server on which your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all cloud hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with several clicks. No coding abilities are required, as you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the very same section and whitelisting any of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range too. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from to, you basically need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
