Occasionally you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things could drastically undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server on which your Internet site 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 create the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your site are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you would like to block one or several IP addresses, you could use the IP Blocking tool, which is incorporated into our in-house built Hepsia CP.
