Every now and then you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There are spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things can significantly undermine your work, as no one likes to visit a website with many fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server on which your site is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your site are real.

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared website hosting accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with a couple of clicks. No coding abilities are needed, as you'll use an intuitive interface - you need to simply 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 you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting any of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by different IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range also. This could be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from to, you simply need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
