Every now and then you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things can drastically undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which may result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, so as to make sure that the visits to your website are real.

No coding skills are required, because you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range as well. This can be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with our semi-dedicated servers, will permit you to solve the issue with unwanted traffic very easily. It incorporates an IP blocking tool in which you can add IP addresses with only several clicks. All domains and subdomains you have inside the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you only have to select the one you need and then enter the IP address which needs to be blocked. If you want to block a whole range, a C-class network for example, you just have to enter the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. This will block all 254 addresses, so you'll not need to type in them by hand. As all the IPs you add in this section shall be listed, you could very easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button relevant to the particular IP.
