From time to time you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. Such things can greatly undermine your projects, because nobody likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server on which your site is hosted, which can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you wish to block one or a number of IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that's incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Using a really simple interface, you can stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform that is to log inside to your Control Panel, to check out the IP Blocking section, to pick a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You'll not need to do anything challenging if you want to block a whole network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from to All blocked IPs shall be listed in the same exact section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with a click.
