Once in a while you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things can greatly undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit a website with many fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server where your website is hosted, that could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.

You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take only a mouse click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range too. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server account with us and you want to block one or numerous IP addresses eventually, you are able to benefit from the easy-to-use blocking tool, which we've supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With a couple of mouse clicks, you will be able to block individual IPs or entire ranges, if needed. All you'll need to do is select any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking should be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that is part of the site, and then enter 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 based on the size of the network which you want to block. All the addresses that you have restricted shall be listed in the exact same section and if you want to whitelist any one of them, you shall be able to do it with only a click at any time.
