Learn more about IP blocking, why it can be so beneficial and when to employ it.
In case you notice a major increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations around the world or from other servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random sites trying to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where such an option is made available. The fact is that, this is something quite frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Certainly, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud website hosting
accounts. It will allow you to block addresses with several mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses you have added inside the very same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range too. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52, you just need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts feature a very simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that'll enable you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your sites with no more thana couple of clicks and you won't have any difficulties to achieve that even if that's your first web hosting account. When you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will simply have to choose the domain or subdomain you want from a drop-down list, then enter the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To restrict the access for an entire network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type 123.123. and don't enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our hosting server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
