Once in a while you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to blog articles. Such things may considerably undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server on which your website is hosted, which could result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, so as to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are real.

IP Blocking in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting from our company, you will be able to see comprehensive traffic statistics for all your Internet sites and if you notice that many of the visits to any of them are not legitimate, you can block the IP addresses which have generated the most traffic using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is very simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then input the IP address that you'd like to block and save the change. All the addresses which you have blacklisted will appear inside the same section of the Control Panel, so you're able to always remove any one of them and allow it to access your site again. You are able to block whole IP ranges via the tool also - you just need to leave one or two 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.
