From time to time you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to site articles. This sort of things may greatly undermine your work, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server on which your website is hosted, which could result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, so as to be certain that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Web Hosting

If you get a Linux web hosting from our company, you shall be able to see in depth traffic statistics for all of your Internet sites and if you notice that a lot of the visits to each of them aren't authentic, you could block the IP addresses which have generated the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is extremely simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address that you want to block and save the change. All the addresses which you have blacklisted will appear in the very same section of the Control Panel, so you're able to always remove any one of them and enable it to access your website again. You are able to block whole IP ranges through the tool as well - you just have to leave 1 or 2 octets from the address blank. For example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.
