From time to time you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and online traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This type of things can significantly undermine your work, simply because no one likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server in which your website is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, so as to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.

No coding abilities are necessary, as you shall use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice your website is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range as well. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, will enable you to solve the challenge with unwanted traffic very efficiently. It incorporates an IP blocking tool in which you may add IP addresses with several clicks. All domains and subdomains that you have in the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you simply have to pick the one you need and then type the IP address that has to be blocked. If you want to block a whole range, a C-class network for instance, you just have to type the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This will block all 254 addresses, so you will not need to input them by hand. As all the IPs which you add in this section will be listed, you could very easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button related to the given IP.
