Occasionally you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. Such things may considerably undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, which can result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your website are real.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans offer an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to restrict the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with simply several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is a breeze to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks as well, so if you enter 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with a click from the same section.
