Once in a while you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to website articles. Such things may significantly undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server in which your site is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, offered with our Linux semi-dedicated services, will enable you to solve the challenge with unwanted traffic very easily and quickly. It includes an IP blocking tool in which you can add IP addresses with only several mouse clicks. All domains and subdomains that you have within the account shall be listed in a drop-down menu, so you simply have to pick the one you need and then type in the IP address which has to be blocked. If you wish to block a whole range, a C-class network for example, you simply need to enter the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That will block all 254 addresses, so you will not have to input them by hand. Because all the IPs which you include in this section will be listed, you can effortlessly unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button related to the particular IP.
