In case you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot.

Unfortunately, this is something quite popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Of course, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.

IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting

Our Linux cloud web hosting offer an IP blocking tool, so in case you'd like to restrict the access to your sites, you will be able to do this with several mouse clicks.

To prohibit the access for an entire network, you'll have to leave one or more octets blank.
