If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places around the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random websites trying to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where such an option is provided. However, that's something quite common in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots won't be able to access your website in any way. Naturally, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared web hosting accounts. It'll permit you to block addresses with several mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take only 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 could be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from to, you simply have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
