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 instance, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things can greatly undermine your hard work, as no one likes to visit a website with hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server on which your site is hosted, which could result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you would like to block one or several IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that's included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Through a rather simple interface, you are able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform that is to log inside to your CP, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to pick a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You will not need to do anything complicated if you would like to block an entire network - you'll just need to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the entire range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed in the exact same section, so you'll be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a click.
