If 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 locations across the world or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random sites aiming to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where this type of an option is made available. Regrettably, that is something relatively frequent nowadays, 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 website in any way. Naturally, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
come with an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, it shall be able to do so with only a few mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. As you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type in the IP address which should be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks too, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this will block all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 from accessing your Internet sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
