If you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries all over the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random sites aiming to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where such an option is offered. The fact is that, that is something rather popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Needless to say, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

Our Linux cloud hosting packages include an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to restrict the access to your Internet sites, you will be able to do this with only several clicks. The tool is provided with the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts and that is quite simple to use. Once you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just need to pick a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address that should be blocked. Our system will allow you to block whole networks as well, so if you type in 123.123.123., for instance, this will block all IP addresses between and from accessing your Internet sites. In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a click from the same section.
