From time to time you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things could greatly undermine your hard work, since no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your website are real.

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all cloud website hosting accounts. It shall enable you to block addresses with a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are needed, since you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added inside the exact same section and whitelisting any of them shall take only a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range also. This can be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
