Well Mike F. What about blocking an IP address that is clearly making an attack on our website?

The IP is 168.180.18.146, and it has hit our pages about 1000 times an hour for the last two hours.

We are using statcounter and other monitors, the activity started on the site around noon and has continued on and off all day.

Hi Jill4147, Sorry but I don't have any access to seeing how they are pulling, or how they are reporting this data. Our stat tracker is only showing a total of 6 visits from Utah all day on Feb 4th. I am wondering if their system is somehow using the IP address to count traffic, because Homestead uses shared IP addresses which means that your site is using the same IP address of thousands of other sites.

Also, are you still seeing this activity?
