If you see a considerable increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other web servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this kind of an option is made available. Regrettably, that's something rather common these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Certainly, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.

As soon as you log in and visit the IP blocking section, you shall just have to select a domain or a subdomain hosted in the account and type the IP address which needs to be blocked. Our system enables you to block whole networks also, so if you enter 123.123.123., for instance, this shall block all IP addresses between and from accessing your sites. In case you want to whitelist an IP at some point, you can unblock it with a mouse click from the same section.
