How to block an IP address

Recommended Posts

'

Hello.

 

Yesterday I my statistic on Prestashop suddently showed that I had more than 3000 visitors during that day and more than 100 last 30 minutes. The same happens today.  

When looking at the IP list of the visitors I see that it is the same IP that attack my shop all the time, every 30-40 second.

By using WHOIS I see that the IP address belongs to someone in Bejing China.

 

59.40.201.19

 

How can I stop this IP adress from visiting my shop and xxxx up my stats ??

 

I have installed the free module Ban IP Free but and put the IP address in there but it don't seem to have any effect.

 

Thank you

 

Petter

And the paid one? Try to do some research about it.

Do you have cPanel on your server you can block them that way.

Update:

 

It seems that the Ban IP Free is working after all.

Maybe it just needed some time to settle.

The IP address is no longer attacking my site and things are back to normal.

If it starts again I will check our the cPanel and also the paid version of the module.

 

Thanks for your help.
