If you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the world or from other servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random sites looking to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath every article where this sort of an option is offered. Unfortunately, that's something quite common lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Needless to say, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.
IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting
Our IP Blocking tool is included with the revolutionary Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all cloud hosting
accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with several mouse clicks. No coding abilities are required, as you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added within the same section and whitelisting any of them will take just a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range as well. This can be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206, you only have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
