If you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random sites looking to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where this type of an option is offered. Regrettably, that is something rather popular these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Obviously, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your site.

No coding skills are required, due to the fact that you'll use an intuitive interface - you just need to pick a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you would like to be blocked.

To limit the access for a whole network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and don't input anything within the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
