If you see a significant increase in the traffic to your website and if after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries all over the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random sites aiming to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this kind of an option is provided. Regrettably, that's something quite popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Of course, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.
IP Blocking in Shared Web Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the advanced Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared web hosting accounts. It'll enable you to block addresses with a few mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, because you shall use an intuitive interface - you just have to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address you want to be blocked. You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added in the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take simply a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from to, you only have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
