Occasionally you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. Such things can significantly undermine your projects, simply because nobody likes to visit a website with countless fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server on which your site is hosted, that can result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which produce the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your website are legitimate.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting account with our company and you want to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that's included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Using a pretty simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform this is to log in to your Control Panel, to check out the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You'll not need to do anything challenging if you wish to block an entire network - you'll just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from to All blocked IPs shall be listed within the very same section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with a mouse click.
