In case you notice a large increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random websites looking to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this kind of an option is provided. Regrettably, that is something quite common in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Obviously, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you want to block one or several IP addresses, you can use the IP Blocking tool, that's incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. By using a rather simple interface, you could stop any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it takes to do this is to log in to your CP, to check out the IP Blocking section, to select a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You simply won't need to do anything complicated if you would like to block an entire network - you will simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed in the same section, so you will be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As you go to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you will find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added in the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is select the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then input the IP inside the box below. The change shall take effect right away, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is just as easy.
