Occasionally you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers that leave links to suspicious sites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things can drastically undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit a site with many fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server where your Internet site is hosted, which could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with only several mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is very simple to use. When you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and input the IP address which should be blocked. Our system will enable you to block entire networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your sites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with simply a mouse click from the same section.
