Once in a while you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things can considerably undermine your hard work, as no one likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server where your website is hosted, which can result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you want to block one or a number of IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that's integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a pretty simple interface, you'll be able to stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete that is to log in to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to pick a specific domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You will not need to do anything difficult if you'd like to block an entire network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the entire range from to All blocked IPs will be listed within the same section, so you'll be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with a mouse click.
