If you see a considerable increase in the online traffic to your website and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations across the globe or from other web servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites attempting to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this sort of an option is provided. However, this is something rather popular nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Of course, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all cloud hosting accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with simply several mouse clicks. No coding abilities are needed, due to the fact that you shall use an intuitive interface - you need to simply pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added within the same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range also. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you just need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with no more thanseveral clicks and you will not have any troubles to achieve that even if this is your first hosting account. As soon as you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will simply have to pick the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then input the IP address inside a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and do not type in anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
