If you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your website and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other web servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random websites aiming to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath every article where this sort of an option is provided. Unfortunately, this is something quite popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Naturally, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.
IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is part of the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared website hosting
accounts. It shall allow you to block addresses with just a couple of mouse clicks. No coding skills are required, since you'll use an intuitive interface - you just need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the same section and whitelisting each of them shall take only a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range also. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52, you just have to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
