If you see a big increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the globe or from other servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random sites looking to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where such an option is made available. However, that is something quite popular these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Needless to say, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our Linux cloud hosting packages offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you would like to limit the access to your websites, you'll be able to do this with simply several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is super easy to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you'll just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and input the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will enable you to block whole networks as well, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with just a click from the same section.
