If you see a large increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas all over the world or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites looking to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any sort of article where this type of an option is provided. However, that's something relatively common lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Naturally, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all website hosting accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with a couple of clicks. No coding skills are necessary, because you shall use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range too. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from to, you simply have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
