If you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations around the world or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random sites seeking to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where such an option is made available. However, that is something quite common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will not be able to access your website in any way. Of course, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans include an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to limit the access to your websites, you will be able to do this with only several mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is very easy to use. As you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just have to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks also, so if you enter 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
