If you see a major increase in the online traffic to your website and if after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the globe or from other servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random Internet sites attempting to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where this type of an option is available. Unfortunately, this is something quite popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will not be able to access your website in any way. Of course, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.

IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting

Our Linux shared web hosting include an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with a few clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. As you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you shall just need to select a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will enable 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. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a click from the same section.
