Once in a while you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to blog articles. This type of things can considerably undermine your projects, simply because no one likes to visit a website with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server where your Internet site is hosted, which can result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your site are authentic.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all web hosting
accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the same section and whitelisting any of them will take only a mouse click. If you notice your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range as well. This could be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124, you simply need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

This shall block all 254 addresses, so you shall not have to type in them by hand. As all the IPs you include in this section will be listed, you could easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button related to the particular IP.
