From time to time you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. Such things may drastically undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server where your Internet site is hosted, which may result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with a really simple-to-use IP blocking tool, that will enable you to restrict individual IPs or even entire networks from accessing your Internet sites with justseveral mouse clicks and you won't have any difficulties to accomplish that even if that's your first web hosting account. As soon as you visit the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia CP, you will only need to select the domain or subdomain in question from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within a box which you'll see there and you will be all set. To restrict the access for a whole network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank. For instance, if you type 123.123. and don't enter anything within the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
