Every now and then you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. This type of things may drastically undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server on which your website is hosted, which could result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our Linux shared hosting include an IP blocking tool, so if you want to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do so with simply a few clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. Once you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you will just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and input the IP address that should be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks also, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. If you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you would like to block one or a few IP addresses at some point, you'll be able to use the easy-to-use blocking tool, that we've supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks, you will be able to block particular IPs or whole ranges, if required. All you'll need to do is pick any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, select if the blocking must be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that is part of the Internet site, and then enter the IP address that you would like to block. For an IP range, you simply need to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address based on the size of the network which you want to block. All of the addresses that you've restricted will be listed within the exact same section and if you wish to whitelist any of them, you'll be able to do it with a mouse click whenever you want.
