Occasionally you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things can significantly undermine your projects, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which may result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

Our Linux website hosting packages include an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to limit the access to your sites, you will be able to do this with a couple of clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's quite simple to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and enter the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.

Our semi-dedicated server accounts include a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your websites with onlya few mouse clicks and you won't have any problems to do that even if that is your first web hosting account. As soon as you navigate 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 enter the IP address inside a box that you will see there and you will be ready. To prohibit the access for a whole network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type in 123.123. and don't input anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between and
