Find out more about IP blocking, precisely what it indicates and how and when it’s best to utilize it.
Once in a while you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to suspicious websites as comments to website articles. Such things may greatly undermine your work, since nobody likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server in which your website is hosted, which can result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your site are legitimate.

accounts. It will enable you to block addresses with just several mouse clicks. No coding skills are necessary, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you need to simply pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address you want to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added in the exact same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a mouse click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range too. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For example, if you need to block all 254 addresses from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, you basically need to input 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
