If you see a considerable increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any sort of article where this type of an option is made available. The fact is that, that's something rather popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Needless to say, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.

No coding skills are needed, as you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and input the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added within the very same section and whitelisting any of them will take only a mouse click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by different IPs, you shall be able to block an entire IP range also. This could be done by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you would like to block all 254 addresses from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255, you basically have to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
