Hey guys, need someone's help here. From the past week or so the bandwidth usage of my site increased from 1GB a month to 12GB a Day!
Awstats indicates that there are a range of unique IPs hitting my site and requesting thousands of pages with every visit. Most of these IPs seem to be originating from within the US which is funny. I have blocked China, Brazil and some other countries in my HTaccess but the hits continue.
Please take a look at these ips, these are just a few from thousands that hit my site almost every second. And each one requests around 1000 pages. My site has only around 100 pages so perhaps they request a page over and over again:
Hey there spiritualSEO, could you help me by dropping in the .htaccess code that you used for solving this. I too am having the very same problem and I am pretty new to this .htaccess stuff. It would really be very kind of you
Hm, I was just going to go look for a moderator to suggest that this new question might get better attention if it were snipped off to a new thread that isn't three pages long with a six-week gap in the middle ;)
