In case 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 across the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites seeking to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this sort of an option is provided. Unfortunately, that's something relatively popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your site in any way. Obviously, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our Linux hosting come with an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to limit the access to your sites, it shall be able to do this with simply a few mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is super easy to use. Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block whole networks as well, so if you type in 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your Internet sites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with onlyseveral clicks and you shall not have any troubles to accomplish that even if that's your first web hosting account. As soon as you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only have to choose the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be all set. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type in 123.123. and don't enter anything in the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
