If you notice a major increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites aiming to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath every article where this type of an option is provided. Unfortunately, this is something rather frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your site in any way. Certainly, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all web hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with simply several mouse clicks. No coding skills are needed, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added in the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range as well. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, offered with our semi-dedicated packages, will enable you to solve the challenge with unwanted traffic very easily and quickly. It comes with an IP blocking tool where you may add IP addresses with just a couple of clicks. All domains and subdomains that you have in the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just need to select the one you need and then type in the IP address that should be blocked. If you wish to block an entire range, a C-class network for instance, you just need to enter the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This shall block all 254 addresses, so you will not have to enter them manually. As all the IPs that you add in this section will be listed, you can easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button relevant to the particular IP.
