Find out more on IP blocking, precisely what it signifies and how and when it’s best to utilize it.
In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your site and if after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random Internet sites trying to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where this type of an option is available. Regrettably, that is something quite common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.
