Is possible to deactivate it?

Yes, delete them from Spiders / Bots.

If you don't want them on your site at all, delete them from Spiders / Bots and block their IP.
Yeah the spiders in that list are pretty much only used on the WOL; if there's no name for them they'd just appear as guests.
Thanks Smile

No no no no!
You do this, your site dies.

No, some sites do not want to be in search engines.

I have a forum that is referal only, so you have to be invited to join. I have blocked search engines from indexing it.

If I delete it and NOT block the IP the site still be appearing in the Search engines... No?
Deleting it from the ACP will simply mean it won't show up as a search engine when it visits, nothing more.
