If you see a big increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites looking to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this kind of an option is provided. However, this is something relatively frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Of course, 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 cloud website hosting plans come with an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to limit the access to your sites, you will be able to do so with simply a few mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's very simple to use. Once you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will allow you to block entire networks also, so if you input 123.123.123., for example, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a click from the same section.
