In case you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your site and if after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random websites attempting to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any sort of article where this kind of an option is offered. Regrettably, that is something quite common in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will not be able to access your website in any way. Needless to say, you can 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 part of the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with just a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you just need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a click. If you notice your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range also. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from to, you basically need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
