Discover more about IP blocking, just what it signifies and how and when it’s best to use it.
In case you notice a major increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other web servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this type of an option is made available. The fact is that, this is something quite popular these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will not be able to access your website in any way. Obviously, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.

No coding abilities are required, as you'll use an intuitive interface - you simply need to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the very same section and whitelisting any of them shall take only a mouse click. If you notice your site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range too. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168, you basically have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
