Every now and then you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may significantly undermine your work, since no one likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server where your site is hosted, that could result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting include an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with simply a few mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. As you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will allow you to block whole networks too, so if you type in 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with simply a mouse click from the same section.
