Once in a while you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and traffic. There are spammers who leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to site articles. This type of things may considerably undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, which can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting account with our company and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is integrated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a rather simple interface, you can stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform this is to log in to your Control Panel, to visit the IP Blocking section, to pick a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You will not have to do anything complex if you would like to block an entire network - you'll just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the full range from to All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the very same section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.
