Every now and then you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things may greatly undermine your projects, since no one likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your website are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all shared hosting accounts. It shall enable you to block addresses with just a few clicks. No coding abilities are needed, as you shall use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select 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 which you have added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range too. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
