IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
If you order a Linux cloud package from our company, you will be able to see comprehensive traffic stats for all your Internet sites and if you notice that many of the visits to each of them are not legit, you can block the IP addresses that have generated the most traffic via our IP Blocking tool. The interface is really simple - pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then enter 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 same exact section of the CP, so you can always remove any one of them and permit it to access your site again. You can block entire IP ranges through the tool as well - you just need to leave 1 or 2 octets from the address blank. For example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52.
IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us and you wish to block one or a few IP addresses sooner or later, you can use the easy-to-use blocking tool, that we've supplied with our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you shall be able to block certain IPs or entire ranges, if necessary. All you'll need to do is pick any one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose if the blocking should be valid for the root folder or for a subfolder that's part of the website, and then enter the IP address that you'd like to block. For an IP range, you only have to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address based on the size of the network you want to block. Each of the addresses that you have restricted will be listed inside the same section and if you would like to whitelist any of them, you will be able to do it with simply a mouse click whenever you want.
