If you notice a big 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 across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random websites attempting to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this type of an option is provided. However, this is something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Of course, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our Linux shared hosting packages include an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to restrict the access to your websites, it shall be able to do so with just several mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is very easy to use. Once you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and enter the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with simplya few clicks and you shall not have any problems to do that even if that is your first web hosting account. Once you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just have to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type the IP address in a box which you'll see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't type in anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between and
