Once in a while you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things could greatly undermine your work, since no one likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server in which your website is hosted, which may result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting account with our company and you want to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Through a rather simple interface, you are able to stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform this is to log in to your CP, to go to the IP Blocking section, to choose a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You simply won't need to do anything difficult if you'd like to block an entire network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed in the exact same section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.
