Once in a while you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to site articles. This sort of things can drastically undermine your hard work, simply because nobody likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, plus the increased site 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 correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your site are real.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
Our Linux shared web hosting packages
come with an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your websites, you will be able to do so with only several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's super easy to use. As you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you will just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type in the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block whole networks as well, so if you type in 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 from accessing your sites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.
