In case you notice a major increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas all over the world or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites aiming to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this kind of an option is made available. Regrettably, this is something rather common lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will not be able to access your website in any way. Naturally, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Hosting

Our Linux hosting packages provide an IP blocking tool, so in case you want to restrict the access to your sites, it shall be able to do this with only a few mouse clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is a breeze to use. Once you log in and go to the IP blocking section, you'll just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and enter the IP address which should be blocked. Our system allows you to block entire networks as well, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. If you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with just a click from the same section.
