Discover more about IP blocking, why it can be so beneficial and when to employ it.
In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random sites seeking to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this type of an option is provided. However, that is something relatively frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your site in any way. Needless to say, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared web hosting
accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, due to the fact that 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 that you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added inside the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range as well. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124, you basically have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts feature a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to prohibit individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your websites with no more thana few clicks and you won't have any difficulties to do that even if that's your first website hosting account. When you go to 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 in a box that you'll see there and you will be ready. To limit the access for a whole network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type 123.123. and don't type in anything within the third and fourth positions, our server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.
