Occasionally you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. This type of things can greatly undermine your work, simply because nobody likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective 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 site are legitimate.

Our Linux hosting services offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your websites, it shall be able to do this with only a few clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block entire networks as well, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your websites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.
