How to Disable Crawl Protection for Your Website

We implemented protection against malicious bots that consume the resources of the websites, hosted at Hosting Jump. We constantly update the "black" list of the bad bots and do not recommend turning the protection off.

But if you need to crawl your website - here is a step-by-step guide on how to switch off the protection against malicious bots: There are two options to stop the crawl protection of your website from malicious bots:

1. In cPanel

Log in to Your cPanel Account: cPanel -> Mod Security

The Mod Security menu allows you to deactivate the security activated by default for your account. You have the option to manage the exclusion for specific domains/subdomains or the entire account.

Important: If you deactivate the field protection, you should note that the entire protection associated with Mod Security is deactivated, not just the bot crawl protection. This comprehensive protection protects your website not only from malicious bots crawling your website but also from your website being hacked.

2. Adding Code Lines in The .htaccess File

To prevent your website from being crawled by malicious bots, you need to add the following line to your site's .htaccess file:

<IfModule mod_security.c>
  SecRuleRemoveById 350001
  SecRuleRemoveById 1020

If you enter this code, the bots-only part of Mod Security will be disabled.
