Occasionally you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things may drastically undermine your work, because nobody likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server where your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your site are legitimate.

Using a really simple interface, you can prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have never had a web hosting account before. All it takes to perform that is to log in to your CP, to check out the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You'll not have to do anything challenging if you wish to block a whole network - you'll simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the entire range from to All blocked IPs shall be listed in the same section, so you'll be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with simply a mouse click.
