From time to time you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. Such things may drastically undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit a site with many fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server on which your site is hosted, that can result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting account with us and you wish to block one or a number of IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. Using a rather simple interface, you can prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete that is to log in to your Control Panel, to go to the IP Blocking section, to pick a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You simply won't need to do anything challenging if you wish to block an entire network - you'll just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from to All blocked IPs will be listed within the very same section, so you'll be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with just a click.
