Need to block a domain ... manually is okay.

I have a domain that, using 4 IPs, hit my site for over 25k pages in just a short time this morning. I don't know how my host feels about that, but I'm not too thrilled.

What is the name of the .htaccess directive I need? I need/want to block something like

255.255.255.255.static.reverse.example.com
by blocking the "example.com" part and sweeping everything else into the dustbin with it.

First off, this not really the correct forum for these topics.

Rather the SSID Forum [webmasterworld.com]

Domain name denials are server intensive and could literally shut your server down.

It's more effective and less intensive to deny a range from a host.
Without you providing a detailed raw visitor log with an accurate there's not any way to assist you under a hypothetical scenario.

SSID Charter offers a broader method of displaying logs and IP ranges than this forum.
