In case you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot.

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