From time to time you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things could significantly undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting account with our company and you wish to block one or a number of IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Using a very simple interface, you are able to restrict any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform that is to log within to your CP, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to choose a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You'll not need to do anything complex if you'd like to block a whole network - you'll just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed in the exact same section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.
