Learn more about IP blocking, why it can be so advantageous and when to employ it.
Occasionally you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. This type of things can drastically undermine your hard work, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all web hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, because you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range as well. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, you basically need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
