Every now and then you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to site articles. Such things can considerably undermine your hard work, since no one likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server where your site is hosted, which could result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, so as to be certain that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all website hosting accounts. It will allow you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are needed, as you shall use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added within the same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a click. If you notice your website is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from to, you simply have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to block one or a number of IP addresses eventually, you could benefit from the easy-to-use blocking tool, that we've supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With only several mouse clicks, you'll be able to block individual IPs or whole ranges, if needed. All you will need to do is select any of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, decide if the blocking must be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that is part of the website, and then input the IP address that you would like to block. For an IP range, you simply have to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address in accordance with the size of the network which you want to block. All of the addresses which you have restricted will be listed inside the exact same section and if you wish to whitelist any of them, you will be able to do it with only a click anytime.
