Block unwanted users from your site using .htaccess

My website is being attacked from different IP addresses. It is fake request but I am seeing common user agent. Is there anyway to block such traffic using .htaccess and user agent?

Yes, it is possible to block the access based on user-agent. You can refer our following KB:

In this KB, refer section "Block bad users based on their User-Agent string" for more details.

Hope this will help you.
