In case you notice a major increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any sort of article where this type of an option is made available. However, that's something quite frequent lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Of course, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting
Our Linux web hosting offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to limit the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with several mouse clicks. The tool is part of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. Once you log in and navigate to the IP blocking section, you will 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 too, so if you enter 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 from accessing your sites. If you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a mouse click from the same section.
