Every now and then you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things may significantly undermine your work, because nobody likes to visit a site with many fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, which could result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia hosting CP, included with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, will permit you to solve the problem with unwanted traffic very easily.

All domains and subdomains which you have inside the account will be listed in a drop-down menu, so you just need to choose the one you need and then input the IP address that should be blocked. If you want to block an entire range, a C-class network for instance, you just need to type the first 3 octets of the IP and leave the last one blank. That shall block all 254 addresses, so you'll not need to type them manually. Because all the IPs that you add in this section will be listed, you may very easily unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button relevant to the given IP.
