Occasionally you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to blog articles. Such things may drastically undermine your hard work, as nobody likes to visit a site with many fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or a few IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, that is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Using a rather simple interface, you are able to prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform that is to log within to your Control Panel, to go to the IP Blocking section, to pick a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to type in the IP address. You won't have to do anything complex if you want to block a whole network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the full range from to All blocked IPs will be listed inside the same exact section, so you shall be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.
