If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your site and if after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites looking to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this kind of an option is provided. However, that's something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses from 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 specific countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our hosting plans include an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do so with a few mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. As you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type in the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks also, so if you type in 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the unwelcome traffic to any site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, because we provide a very easy-to-use tool to do that, which is included with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have never addressed this sort of matters in the past, you will not have any difficulties, because our tool provides a very user-friendly interface. When you check out the IP blocking section of the CP, you will find a complete list of all the domains and subdomains which you have added in the Hosted Domains section. What you need to do to block an IP address is choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then enter the IP in the box below. The change shall take effect at once, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is just as easy.
