Every now and then you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. Such things can greatly undermine your projects, as no one likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server in which your website is hosted, which could result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting services include an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your sites, you'll be able to do so with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that's very simple to use. As you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you shall just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type in the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks as well, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, will permit you to solve the problem with unwanted traffic very quickly and easily. It incorporates an IP blocking tool where you may add IP addresses with a couple of clicks. All domains and subdomains which you have in the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you only need to select the one you need and then enter the IP address which has to be blocked. If you would like to block an entire range, a C-class network for instance, you just need to type the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That will block all 254 addresses, so you shall not have to input them by hand. As all the IPs you include in this section shall be listed, you could easily unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button related to the particular IP.
