If you notice a major increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the world or from other web servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random websites looking to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where such an option is provided. Unfortunately, that is something rather frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Of course, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.

As soon as you check out the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll just need to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be all set. To limit the access for a whole network, you have to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not enter anything within the third and fourth positions, our server will deny requests from all IP addresses between and
