If you see a considerable increase in the traffic to your Internet site and in case after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random sites aiming to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any sort of article where such an option is offered. However, that is something quite common these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots won't be able to access your website in any way. Obviously, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you shall be able to see in depth traffic stats for all your websites and if you notice that many of the visits to any of them are not legitimate, you are able to block the IP addresses which have produced the most traffic via our IP Blocking tool. The interface is extremely simple - pick the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type the IP address that you'd like to block and save the change. All of the addresses which you have blacklisted shall appear in the same section of the Control Panel, allowing you to always remove any of them and allow it to access your site again. You are able to block whole IP ranges via the tool as well - you simply need to leave one or two octets from the address blank. As an example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.
