If you notice a major increase in the traffic to your website and in case after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites looking to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where this kind of an option is made available. However, this is something rather popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will not be able to access your website in any way. Naturally, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.

All it requires to complete that is to log inside to your Control Panel, to check out the IP Blocking section, to pick a particular domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to input the IP address. You shall not have to do anything complicated if you would like to block a whole network - you will simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the entire range from to All blocked IPs will be listed within the very same section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a click.
