    Hey guys! I'm having a problem with my websites. So I recently made a blog on a niche and it has very little traffic (<10 visitors per day). I was checking Google Analytics and found out a huge number of unique visitors on a landing page that doesn't exist. Here's a image showing what I mean. Also, I'm using shared hosting and today my account was suspended for overusing the server (IDK how that's possible). They sent me a message on where the huge traffic came from. Obviously, something is not right. I was bringing traffic to a different website from Social Media but this is way too much.

    Code:
    [LEFT][COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]Hits by IP: [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]------------- [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]732 Total from: 92.81.216.26 [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]732 Total from: 94.52.146.2 [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]740 Total from: 88.158.69.188 [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]750 Total from: 109.96.4.79 [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]828 Total from: 5.15.205.250 [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]903 Total from: 86.121.85.245 [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]926 Total from: 109.103.141.11 [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]1112 Total from: 77.81.59.32 [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]1207 Total from: 175.126.82.54 [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]2568 Total from: 37.156.44.98
    
    [LEFT][COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]Pages requested by IP: 
    [LEFT][COLOR=#FFFFFF][FONT=Arial]1195 Hits from: 175.126.82.54 request: "POST /wp-login.php 
    [/FONT][/COLOR][/LEFT]
    [/FONT][/COLOR][/LEFT]
    [/FONT][/COLOR]
    [/LEFT]
    
    Could someone explain what can I do to limit the connections from any IP? Thanks!

    If you have that many hits on the login page, then someone is undergoing a brute force attack on you login form. google this "what is a brute force attack" if they are using the same IP then it's probably some kid.

    Something is not right if your host just 'let you off'. It seems that they would offer DDoS protections to keep you safe, and to keep their wallets full.

    Not an expert, but that's what I first had in mind when I saw so many visits on login page. How do I block certain IPs from visiting my website?
    Somehow, there's a .htacces editor in Control Panel, I didn't expect to have one since it's shared hosting. I need to learn how to properly config .htacces in order to prevent this types of atacks in the future.
