In case you notice a large increase in the traffic to your website and if after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random websites trying to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where this type of an option is offered. However, this is something relatively frequent 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 website in any way. Naturally, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

Our Linux shared website hosting packages come with an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do this with several mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. Once you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you shall just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and enter the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole 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 would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a click from the same section.
