If you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places all over the world or from other servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random sites seeking to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath every article where such an option is provided. The fact is that, this is something rather common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your site in any way. Naturally, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared web hosting accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, since you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice your website is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range too. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from to, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
