Discover more about IP blocking, exactly what it means and how and when it’s best to utilize it.
If you see a big increase in the traffic to your site and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath every article where such an option is offered. Regrettably, this is something relatively frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Obviously, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
