If you see a significant increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites looking to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where such an option is made available.

To limit the access for an entire network, you need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not enter anything inside the third and fourth positions, our web server shall deny requests from all IP addresses between and
