Find out more on IP blocking, precisely what it indicates and how and when it’s best to use it.
Once in a while you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and site traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things could significantly undermine your hard work, since no one likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server on which your site is hosted, that could result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are real.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the innovative Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all cloud hosting
accounts. It'll allow you to block addresses with just several clicks. No coding skills are required, due to the fact that you shall use an intuitive interface - you need to simply pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses you have added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range as well. This may be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52, you just need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
