If you notice a major increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations around the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random Internet sites seeking to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this kind of an option is offered. The fact is that, that is something rather frequent these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Certainly, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.

No coding abilities are needed, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to select 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 inside the very same section and whitelisting any of them will take simply a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by different IPs, you will be able to block an entire IP range also. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you want to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically need to type in 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
