Using your htaccess to block IP addresses is NOT the way to go. This will not only help to slow your website down, but you may in fact start to see errors in your cPanel error log......
True you might get a negligible hit on performance, but that might be a small price to pay for peace of mind, and the errors listed in the CPanel are actually proof that the restrictions are working....
after a while you will see the errors decrease to Zero as they stop trying to access the site....then you can always remove the restriction, wash, rinse, repeat....
Old enough to remember when Water was free, and you had to pay for Porn :o
