If you notice a major increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas all over the world or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites trying to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this kind of an option is provided. Unfortunately, that is something quite frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Naturally, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all cloud hosting accounts. It will allow you to block addresses with simply a couple of clicks. No coding skills are required, because you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added within the same section and whitelisting any of them shall take just a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range too. This can be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
