Once in a while you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things could significantly undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit a website with countless fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your site are real.
IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting
Our Linux shared website hosting packages provide an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with just a few mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is very easy to use. As soon as you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you shall just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type in the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with simply a click from the same section.
