Is there a way to ban people by their user agent(browser id) Because ip bans aint helping they keep coming back with either proxy or vpn.
Banning by useragent won't really help - it can be changed even more easily.

Just start blocking entire ASNs that belong to data-centers etc... There's no reason for anything other than home IP addresses to be accessing your site.

There's a good start. That's like a huge proportion of VPNs and proxies right there.

Do i need to upload them to  our webhost via ftp? Or do we need to add a certain code to  htaccess.
