Every now and then you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things can greatly undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a site with many fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server on which your website is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your site are real.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool comes with the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all website hosting accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with simply a few clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you need to simply pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
