Once in a while you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to website articles. Such things can drastically undermine your work, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which could result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our Linux cloud website hosting services include an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to limit the access to your sites, it shall be able to do so with only a couple of clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. As you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and enter the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block entire networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to block IP addresses easily and stop the unwelcome traffic to any site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with us, as we provide a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, which is offered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have not dealt with this type of matters in the past, you will not have any difficulties, because our tool has a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you check out the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added within the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP within the box below. The change will take effect straightaway, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Taking away an IP from the blocked list is equally uncomplicated.
