    Hi,

    I’m getting hundreds of hourly attempts trying all sorts of password/names. such as Russia, China…usual suspects.

    Just looking for some ideas to stop attempting hackers

    Using WordFence, IPBlock Countries and a host of other related plugins

    Problem I realise of course, is if they are using dynamic ip addresses, its a tough ask to being able to stop them so if anyone has any ‘tested’ ideas would be good.

    Many Thanks

    Have you activated Cloudflare with your hosts? It’s normally quite good at handling DDOS floods, which is basically what your site is experiencing.
