In case you notice a large increase in the traffic to your site and if after you look at the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas around the world or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites looking to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this type of an option is offered. The fact is that, this is something rather frequent lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots won't be able to access your site in any way. Naturally, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our IP Blocking tool is included with the ground breaking Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all cloud hosting accounts. It will permit you to block addresses with a couple of mouse clicks. No coding abilities are needed, due to the fact that you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block a whole 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 to, you only need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
