In case you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites looking to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this type of an option is provided. The fact is that, this is something quite popular these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will not be able to access your Internet site 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 required, because you'll use an intuitive interface - you just have to select a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type in the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added in the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a click. If you notice your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range too. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address.

This shall block all 254 addresses, so you will not have to enter them manually. As all the IPs that you include in this section will be listed, you may easily unblock any one of them by clicking the Delete button relevant to the particular IP.
