Discover more about IP blocking, why it could be so advantageous and when to use it.
Once in a while you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to suspicious websites as comments to blog articles. Such things may drastically undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a website with hundreds of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting feature an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to limit the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do so with only a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is very simple to use. As you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you will just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block whole networks also, so if you input 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 from accessing your websites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a click from the same section.
