    If you're hosting your own site. You can block ip using cpanel.

    Blocking a country is not a good idea, but you may block ip addresses.

    Why not use cloudflare : You can block countries , they have a nice firewall , you can also block some ips . Check it out their security features cloudflare.com/features-security

    You should use .htaccess files to block IPs or range of IPs instead of using plugins.

    Cloudfare + htaccess to block ip or even a range of ip =)
    but they surely use proxies, install a good wp security addon too

    Running wordpress, you're probably be attacked by automated hacking scripts, if you use this plugin then you will not have to block out whole country's. You should contact the developer and ask them some questions first before using it. here is there support

    Wordfence and BulletProof Security, I think both have this features. I also always use Cloud Flare, worked fine for me.

    Or you can make wp-admin access only from your IP, so no one else can access the wp-admin login panel

    Would be better to block individual IPs rather than countries, unless of course your targeted audience is strictly nationwide.
