In case you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your site and if after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites seeking to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this type of an option is made available. Unfortunately, that's something relatively frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Needless to say, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our hosting packages come with an IP blocking tool, so if you want to restrict the access to your websites, you will be able to do this with only a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is quite simple to use. As you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and enter the IP address which should be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us and you would like to block one or a few IP addresses eventually, you may leverage the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we've supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With only a few mouse clicks, you shall be able to block individual IPs or whole ranges, if necessary. All you'll have to do is select any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking needs to be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that's part of the site, and then type in the IP address that you'd like to block. For an IP range, you simply need to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address in accordance with the size of the network that you want to block. All of the addresses that you have restricted will be listed in the exact same section and if you would like to whitelist any of them, you shall be able to do it with simply a mouse click whenever you want.
