If you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your site and if after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas around the world or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random sites attempting to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where this sort of an option is offered. The fact is that, that's something relatively frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Obviously, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.

IP Blocking in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a shared hosting package from us, you shall be able to see comprehensive traffic statistics for all of your websites and if you notice that a large amount of the visits to each of them aren't authentic, you are able to block the IP addresses which have produced the most traffic via our IP Blocking tool. The interface is quite simple - pick 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 of the addresses which you have blacklisted shall appear inside the same section of the CP, so that you can always remove any of them and enable it to access your Internet site again. You can block whole IP ranges through the tool too - you simply need 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.

As you navigate to the IP blocking section of the CP, you'll find a comprehensive list of all the domains and subdomains that you've added in the Hosted Domains section. All you should do to block an IP address is choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then type the IP inside the box below. The change shall take effect instantly, so you will not get any traffic from this address in the future. Removing an IP from the blocked list is equally simple.
