Occasionally you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things can greatly undermine your projects, simply because nobody likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server where your website is hosted, which may result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our Linux cloud website hosting packages feature an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to limit the access to your sites, you will be able to do so with simply a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is very easy to use. As you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type in the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks also, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, will allow you to solve the issue with unwanted traffic very easily and quickly. It incorporates an IP blocking tool in which you may add IP addresses with just several mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains you have within the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you only have to choose the one you need and then enter the IP address that has to be blocked. If you want to block a whole range, a C-class network for instance, you just need to type the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That shall block all 254 addresses, so you shall not have to type in them by hand. Because all the IPs which you add in this section shall be listed, you can very easily unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button related to the given IP.
