Occasionally you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. Such things may greatly undermine your projects, because 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 can create high load on the server on which your website is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans include an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do so with a few clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's quite simple to use. As you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type in the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block entire networks as well, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your Internet sites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with just a click from the same section.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to block IP addresses easily and stop the unwanted traffic to any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with us, since we provide a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that's provided with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have not addressed such matters in the past, you will not have any difficulties, considering that our tool has a very user-friendly interface. As soon as you navigate to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you will find a full list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you have to do to block an IP address is pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type the IP in the box below. The change will take effect immediately, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is just as easy.
