If you notice a major increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other web servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random sites attempting to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where such an option is available. Regrettably, this is something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Obviously, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, since you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added inside the very same section and whitelisting any of them will take only a mouse click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range also. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
