If you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from places all over the world or from other servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites attempting to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this sort of an option is provided. Unfortunately, that's something relatively common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your site in any way. Certainly, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.

Our Linux web hosting packages feature an IP blocking tool, so if you would like to limit the access to your sites, it shall be able to do this with only several clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and which is very simple to use. When you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just have to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and enter the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system will allow you to block entire networks too, so if you input 123.123.123., for instance, this'll block all IP addresses between and from accessing your websites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with just a click from the same section.
