In case you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites seeking to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this type of an option is available. The fact is that, this is something relatively frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Naturally, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Hosting

If you have a hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or a number of IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is included in our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Using a pretty simple interface, you'll be able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to complete this is to log inside to your Control Panel, to check out the IP Blocking section, to select a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You shall not need to do anything difficult if you want to block a whole network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from to All blocked IPs will be listed within the very same section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with a click.
