In case you notice a major increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places all over the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random sites aiming to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any sort of article where this type of an option is offered. Unfortunately, this is something rather common these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will not be able to access your website in any way. Obviously, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all hosting accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with simply a couple of clicks. No coding skills are required, since you will use an intuitive interface - you need to simply choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added inside the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block an entire IP range too. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from to, you just need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
