From time to time you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and traffic. There are spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things could significantly undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server on which your site is hosted, which may result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our Linux cloud web hosting services feature an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with only a few clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is very easy to use. When you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you will just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block entire networks too, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your Internet sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with simply a click from the same section.
