If you see a large increase in the traffic to your website and if after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places around the world or from other servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites seeking to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this sort of an option is made available. Regrettably, that is something relatively common lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Needless to say, you are able to 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 plans include an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to restrict the access to your websites, you'll be able to do this with just several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is very easy to use. As you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you will just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with simply a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will permit you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with onlya few mouse clicks and you will not have any troubles to do that even if this is your first website hosting account. Once you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just have to pick the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address in a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for a whole network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and don't input anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
