Occasionally you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things could drastically undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that is included in our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a pretty simple interface, you could stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to complete this is to log within to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You simply won't have to do anything complex if you wish to block a whole network - you will just 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 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed within the exact same section, so you will be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a click.
