From time to time you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and traffic. There are spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. Such things may considerably undermine your work, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, that could result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your website are authentic.
IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared website hosting
accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, because you shall use an intuitive interface - you need to simply select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added in the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
