Once in a while you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things can greatly undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans include an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to restrict the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with only a couple of clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. As you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll 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 will enable you to block whole networks too, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with simply a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting CP, provided with our semi-dedicated hosting plans, will enable you to solve the issue with unwanted traffic very efficiently. It incorporates an IP blocking tool in which you can add IP addresses with just several mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains which you have within the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just have to select the one you need and then type the IP address which has to be blocked. If you would like to block a whole range, a C-class network for instance, you just need to enter the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This shall block all 254 addresses, so you'll not have to enter them manually. Since all the IPs that you include in this section will be listed, you can easily unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button related to the particular IP.
