If you see a major increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the globe or from other web servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random Internet sites looking to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this type of an option is provided. The fact is that, this is something relatively popular in recent times, 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 website in any way. Naturally, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.
IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting come with an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with just several clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is quite simple to use. When you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks too, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. If you wish 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 Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your sites with justa few mouse clicks and you won't have any issues to accomplish that even if that is your first website hosting account. As soon as you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will simply have to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address within a box that you'll see there and you will be good to go. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and don't type in anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
