If you see a big increase in the traffic to your site and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random sites looking to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where such an option is available. Unfortunately, that's something quite popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your website in any way. Naturally, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool comes with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all shared website hosting accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with only a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are needed, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you just need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range as well. This could be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you simply have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
