In case you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random Internet sites looking to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this type of an option is provided. The fact is that, that is something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Naturally, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

Our Linux shared website hosting include an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to limit the access to your websites, it shall be able to do so with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's a breeze to use. When you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with simply a mouse click from the same section.
