Every now and then you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. This type of things could greatly undermine your hard work, as no one likes to visit a site with many fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server where your website is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your website are authentic.

IP Blocking in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to see in depth traffic statistics for all your Internet sites and if you notice that many of the visits to each of them aren't legitimate, you may block the IP addresses which have created the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is extremely simple - pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address that you would like to block and save the change. All of the addresses which you have blacklisted will show up inside the exact same section of the CP, so you're able to always remove any of them and allow it to access your site again. You are able to block entire IP ranges via the tool too - you just have to leave one or two octets from the address blank. For example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.
