Once in a while you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to site articles. This kind of things may considerably undermine your work, because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are real.

The interface is extremely simple - select the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type in the IP address that you would like to block and save the change. All of the addresses that you've blacklisted will show up inside the same exact section of the Control Panel, allowing you to always remove any of them and permit it to access your Internet site again. You could block whole IP ranges via the tool also - you just have 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.

Considering that all the IPs that you add in this section shall be listed, you could effortlessly unblock any of them by clicking the Delete button related to the given IP.
