Once in a while you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and traffic. There are spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to blog articles. This type of things can considerably undermine your projects, simply because nobody likes to visit a site with many fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server where your site is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your website are authentic.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages come with an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do this with only several mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's a breeze to use. Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and input the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks as well, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, will permit you to solve the problem with unwanted traffic very easily. It includes an IP blocking tool in which you may add IP addresses with a few clicks. All domains and subdomains that you have inside the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you only need to select the one you need and then input the IP address that needs to be blocked. If you wish to block a whole range, a C-class network for instance, you simply need to input the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This shall block all 254 addresses, so you'll not have to type them by hand. Since all the IPs that you add in this section will be listed, you could very easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button related to the particular IP.
