If you see a large increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random websites trying to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this kind of an option is offered. Unfortunately, that is something relatively frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans offer an IP blocking tool, so if you want to limit the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do so with just a few mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's quite simple to use. As you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address which should be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks also, so if you type in 123.123.123., for example, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with our semi-dedicated hosting plans, will enable you to solve the matter with unwanted traffic very easily and quickly. It includes an IP blocking tool where you could add IP addresses with just a few mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains you have inside the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just have to select the one you need and then enter the IP address that has to be blocked. If you would like to block a whole range, a C-class network for example, you simply need to input the first three octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That will block all 254 addresses, so you'll not need to input them manually. Considering that all the IPs which you include in this section shall be listed, you could easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button relevant to the particular IP.
