If you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your site and if after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other web servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites looking to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this type of an option is provided. However, that is something rather common nowadays, 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. Certainly, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our Linux cloud hosting come with an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to restrict the access to your sites, you'll be able to do this with just a couple of mouse clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that's super easy to use. Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted within the account and type the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will permit you to block whole networks as well, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 123.123.123.1 and 123.123.123.255 from accessing your Internet sites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a click from the same section.
