In case you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places around the world or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random sites looking to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any article where this sort of an option is offered. However, that is something relatively frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your website in any way. Certainly, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all website hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with several mouse clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, because you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the same section and whitelisting any of them shall take simply a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range too. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
