One of the biggest concerns which you are going to face while running a website is getting spam from website forms. One of the most common ways of spam is comment spam and when it comes to WordPress we have many methods to control comment spam. One of the finest methods is using the Akismet WordPress plugin, you can get it easily from WordPress plugins. We can avoid spam comments on WordPress using the .htaccess file.

Nowadays each one of us wants to know that how spam comments can be avoided as much as possible.

If still, you get your comment spam page, then there is one more way as you might look for few IP addresses that are constantly sending comment spam. The best way to get rid of this spam is by denying their IP address using a .htaccess file. Please keep a backup of your .htaccess file before updating it. You can find it. Htaccess file at the root of your WordPress directory and you can also use SEO by Yoast plugin and Edit files to update your .htaccess file or you can follow this below code which I have mentioned below to make changes in your .htaccess file to block specific IP address. Make sure you take a backup of your .htaccess file before making changes, as even a single wrong change will put your site down so please prefer to take a backup before doing any changes so that it can be easily restored in case of any mishappening.

Here is the code that you need to enter in your .htaccess file, and upload it.

< Limit GET POST>
order allow,deny
deny from 77.543.228.154
allow from all
< /Limit>

You can always enter more IP addresses by adding one more line

deny from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

You can get the IP addresses of the spammer in your spam comment page, in your WordPress dashboard I find this way to be the best way to battle against the lots of spam from bots.
