Once in a while you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things could significantly undermine your hard work, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our shared plans offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to limit the access to your Internet sites, it shall be able to do so with a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is very simple to use. When you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block entire networks too, so if you type 123.123.123., for instance, 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 click from the same section.
