Every now and then you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and online traffic. There are spammers who leave links to suspicious websites as comments to website articles. Such things could drastically undermine your projects, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your website are legitimate.
IP Blocking in Web Hosting

No coding skills are needed, since you will use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses you have added inside the very same section and whitelisting each of them shall take just a mouse click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range as well. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from to, you just need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
