If you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your website and if after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas around the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites attempting to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where such an option is offered. The fact is that, that's something relatively common lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Certainly, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.

No coding skills are necessary, due to the fact that you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added inside the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address.

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 issue with unwanted traffic very quickly and easily. It includes an IP blocking tool where you could add IP addresses with only several mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains you have in the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just need to select the one you need and then type in the IP address that has to be blocked. If you want to block an entire range, a C-class network for example, you simply need to type the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This will block all 254 addresses, so you'll not need to input them by hand. As all the IPs that you add in this section shall be listed, you could effortlessly unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button relevant to the given IP.
