Once in a while you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things may drastically undermine your projects, simply because no one likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server on which your Internet site is hosted, which may result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your website are authentic.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting
Our Linux website hosting feature an IP blocking tool, so if you'd like to limit the access to your sites, you will be able to do so with a few clicks.

To prohibit the access for a whole network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you type in 123.123. and don't type anything in the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between and
