Occasionally you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things may drastically undermine your projects, as no one likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which can result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all shared website hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with only a few clicks. No coding skills are required, as you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added inside the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range too. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from to, you only have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

All the addresses that you've restricted shall be listed in the same exact section and if you would like to whitelist any one of them, you will be able to do it with a mouse click anytime.
