Every now and then you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things can considerably undermine your hard work, because no one likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server where your site is hosted, which can result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your site are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
If you have a website hosting
account with us and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that's incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Through a rather simple interface, you could stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform this is to log inside to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to pick a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You simply won't need to do anything complicated if you would like to block an entire network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124. All blocked IPs will be listed inside the exact same section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with only a click.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the unwanted traffic to any website hosted in a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, as we offer you a very easy-to-use tool to do that, which is our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you haven't tackled such matters in the past, you will not have any difficulties, because our tool features a very user-friendly interface. As you navigate to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you shall find a full list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added in the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is select the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type the IP inside the box below. The change will take effect straightaway, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally easy.
