Find out more about IP blocking, why it can be so advantageous and when to employ it.
Every now and then you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to site articles. This kind of things can drastically undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server on which your site is hosted, which may result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your website are authentic.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting come with an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do so with simply a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is quite simple to use. As you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you will just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type in the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks as well, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 from accessing your Internet sites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with just a click from the same section.
