Once in a while you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. Such things may considerably undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your site are legitimate.

Our shared hosting offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to restrict the access to your websites, it shall be able to do so with just several clicks. The tool is included with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts and that's a breeze to use.

Our system will permit you to block whole networks also, so if you type 123.123.123., for example, this'll block all IP addresses between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 from accessing your sites.
