Every now and then you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and online traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to site articles. This sort of things may significantly undermine your projects, as nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, which can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are real.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

Our Linux shared hosting packages offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to restrict the access to your websites, you'll be able to do this with just a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is quite simple to use. As soon as you log in and check out the IP blocking section, you'll just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks too, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with simply a mouse click from the same section.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to block IP addresses without difficulty and stop the undesirable traffic to any website hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account with our company, as we offer a rather easy-to-use tool to do that, that is included with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have not tackled such issues in the past, you shall not have any difficulties, because our tool features a very user-friendly interface. Once you go to the IP blocking section of the Control Panel, you shall find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added within the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP within the box below. The change will take effect right away, so you'll not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally quick.
