In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your site and if after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random sites aiming to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this sort of an option is offered. The fact is that, that is something quite frequent these days, 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 Internet site in any way. Of course, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
IP Blocking in Shared Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the advanced Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all shared hosting accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with simply a few clicks. No coding abilities are needed, as you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added in the very same section and whitelisting any of them shall take only a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range too. This can be done by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you only need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
