If you see a major increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites seeking to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where this type of an option is available. However, this is something rather popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will be unable to access your site in any way. Needless to say, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our Linux cloud website hosting feature an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to limit the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with only several mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is very simple to use. When you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address that should be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks as well, so if you input 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites.

Once you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just have to pick the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type the IP address in a box that you'll see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for an entire network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you enter 123.123. and do not enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between and
