From time to time you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and online traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to blog articles. Such things could greatly undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a site with many fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which may result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your website are real.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting from us, you will be able to see comprehensive traffic stats for all of your Internet sites and if you notice that a considerable amount of the visits to any of them aren't real, you may block the IP addresses which have generated the most traffic by using our IP Blocking tool. The interface is really simple - pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type the IP address you want to block and save the change. All of the addresses that you have blacklisted shall appear inside the very same section of the Control Panel, so you can always remove any of them and allow it to access your Internet site again. You can block entire IP ranges through the tool also - you just 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.
