If you notice a major increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random sites aiming to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this kind of an option is offered. Unfortunately, that is something rather popular nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will not be able to access your website in any way. Naturally, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with a couple of mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, since you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range also. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
