From time to time you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things can considerably undermine your work, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a Linux cloud website hosting package from our company, you will be able to see comprehensive traffic stats for all of your Internet sites and if you notice that many of the visits to any of them are not real, you may block the IP addresses that have created the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is incredibly simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then input the IP address that you would like to block and save the change. All the addresses you have blacklisted will show up inside the very same section of the Control Panel, allowing you to always remove any of them and allow it to access your website again. You are able to block entire IP ranges using the tool also - you simply need to leave one or two octets from the address blank. As an example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.
