Once in a while you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things could drastically undermine your work, simply because no one likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, which could result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, so as to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are real.

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all website hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with simply a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, as you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added inside the very same section and whitelisting any of them will take only a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range as well. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address.
