Occasionally you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This type of things may drastically undermine your work, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, which can result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting account with us and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. By using a really simple interface, you'll be able to restrict 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 CP, to visit the IP Blocking section, to select a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You won't need to do anything challenging if you would like to block an entire network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from to All blocked IPs shall be listed inside the same section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a mouse click.

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a quite simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with justseveral clicks and you will not have any problems to achieve that even if that's your first hosting account. Once you navigate to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you'll only need to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address in a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for an entire network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type 123.123. and don't type anything within the third and fourth positions, our hosting server will deny requests from all IP addresses between and
