In case you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where such an option is provided. The fact is that, that is something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Of course, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared web hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with a couple of mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, due to the fact that you shall use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses you have added inside the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your Internet 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 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 .
