Hello :)

Have you installed a firewall management tool such as CSF? If so, you could block the attacking IP addresses directly in a firewall.

Thank you.

You may need to consult with a system administrator or your data center to see if there are any ddos protection tools that might be able to help prevent these attacks.

Thank you.
