If you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random websites looking to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this type of an option is available. The fact is that, that is something rather popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Needless to say, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud hosting accounts. It shall permit you to block addresses with only several clicks. No coding abilities are necessary, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you just need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the same section and whitelisting any of them shall take simply a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range too. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you need to block all 254 addresses from to, you only have to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
