In case you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random sites seeking to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this type of an option is available. However, this is something quite common these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Naturally, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your site.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the ground breaking Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with only a few mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, as you'll use an intuitive interface - you simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range as well. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
