Every now and then you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to shady websites as comments to website articles. This kind of things could significantly undermine your work, simply because nobody likes to visit a website with hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server on which your website is hosted, that could result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your website are authentic.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans provide an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to restrict the access to your sites, you will be able to do so with simply a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is very simple to use. As soon as you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to choose a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block entire networks also, so if you enter 123.123.123., for example, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you may unblock it with simply a click from the same section.
