If you see a major increase in the traffic to your website and in case after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random sites seeking to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where such an option is available. The fact is that, that is something rather frequent lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots won't be able to access your website in any way. Of course, 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
If you order a cloud hosting from our company, you will be able to see in depth traffic stats for all of your websites and if you notice that a lot of the visits to each of them are not authentic, you can block the IP addresses which have created the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is really simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then input the IP address you want to block and save the change. All of the addresses which you have blacklisted will appear inside the very same section of the CP, allowing you to always remove any of them and allow it to access your Internet site again. You'll be able to block entire IP ranges using the tool also - you just need to leave 1 or 2 octets from the address blank. For instance, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to block IP addresses effortlessly and stop the unwelcome traffic to any website hosted within a semi-dedicated server account with our company, because we offer a really easy-to-use tool to do that, which is part of our Hepsia hosting CP.

As you visit the IP blocking section of the CP, you shall find a full list of all the domains and subdomains that you have added inside the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is choose the desired domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type in the IP within the box below. The change shall take effect instantly, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally quick.
