In case you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random websites trying to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where such an option is provided. The fact is that, that is something relatively common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Obviously, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting include an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to limit the access to your Internet sites, you'll be able to do so with just several clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is super easy to use. As you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you shall just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for example, this shall block all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 from accessing your Internet sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with just a click from the same section.
