In case you notice a major increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas all over the world or from other web servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites 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 this sort of an option is provided. The fact is that, that's something quite frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Needless to say, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.
IP Blocking in Hosting
Our Linux hosting packages come with an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to restrict the access to your websites, you'll be able to do this with just a few clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and which is quite simple to use. As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted inside the account and type the IP address that needs to be blocked. Our system will allow you to block whole networks also, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 from accessing your sites. In case you wish to whitelist an IP at some point, you could unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
