If you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random sites looking to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this kind of an option is provided. Regrettably, this is something rather common lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Obviously, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our Linux shared hosting include an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your websites, you will be able to do so with just several clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that's quite simple to use. As soon as you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will allow you to block whole networks also, so if you enter 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the unwelcome traffic to any Internet site hosted in a semi-dedicated server account with our company, considering the fact that we provide a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, which is our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you haven't addressed this kind of issues in the past, you'll not have any difficulties, since our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. Once you visit the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a full list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added in the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP within the box below. The change will take effect at once, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally simple.
