From time to time you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. There are spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things may drastically undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which could result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your website are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared hosting accounts. It will allow you to block addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, as you shall use an intuitive interface - you simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the very same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a click. If you notice your site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range too. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from to, you only have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to block IP addresses with ease and stop the unwelcome traffic to any site hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with us, because we offer you a very easy-to-use tool to do that, that is included with our Hepsia hosting CP. Even if you have never dealt with such issues in the past, you won't have any difficulties, since our tool has a very user-friendly interface. As you visit the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you shall find a full list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is choose the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then enter the IP within the box below. The change will take effect instantly, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally simple.
