    Hi,

    I think there is no way to block the entire country to view your site, Instead of this you can block the most visited IP by giving the IP Range.

    We use hardware firewalls infront of our boxes, and use Cisco NTE's which can de-route traffic from subnets which are commonly troublesome (normally from 63.0.0.0/8) ;)

    Linux-integrated firewalls are OK, but nothing beats having a hardware unit for management, logging, and when BFD/LFD can integrate with them to block IP's which are causing problems, your onto a winner.

    The other option you have is Mod-GeoIP. With this module, you can block visitors from specific countires.
