Occasionally you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. Such things could greatly undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server where your Internet site is hosted, which may result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your website are authentic.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting account with our company and you want to block one or a few IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a pretty simple interface, you could stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete this is to log inside to your CP, to check out the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You simply won't need to do anything complicated if you wish to block an entire network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the entire range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the same section, so you'll be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a click.
