If you see a considerable increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places around the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random sites seeking to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where this type of an option is provided. The fact is that, that's something relatively common in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your website in any way. Naturally, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans come with an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do so with simply a couple of clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that's very easy to use. As soon as you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks also, so if you input 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with a click from the same section.

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with justa few clicks and you will not have any troubles to do that even if that is your first website hosting account. When you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll only have to select the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To restrict the access for a whole network, you must leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type 123.123. and do not type anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between and
