Bots come regularly, I don't even know what they need. They wind up behavioral factors for themselves or try to throw my site out of the top,
or maybe a certain service for tracking bots is trying to force me to fork out for their services in this way.
Doesn't matter.

Previously, they were very easy to deal with. But I had to switch to another hosting... in general, there is not even a regular service there to track the IP addresses of bots.
On another hosting, there are other sores, on the third, third problems ...

There is a CIDRAM WordPress plugin, absolutely free, but difficult to set up due to poor instructions. I use its functions by 80 percent.
I would like it to be 100%.

I assume that the bots come from one LLC Cloud Networks server.

Just hang on Cloudflare and block the subnets you want in a couple of clicks.
It's free.

Connected, now in the mail, which is on the domain, letters have stopped coming.

What needs to be screwed up where?

The fact of the matter is that the records have already been updated and Cloudflare has stopped sending letters through the connected domain. I turned off the proxy for email records in the DNS settings, and still the letters do not reach. Letters go to SMTP, but they do not come from IMAP.

In NX - MX is slightly confused)
Now everything is fine.

Great, why no one says that Cloudflare successfully keeps bots out of the site, and you don't need to pay anything.
I pressed only 2 buttons (check JavaScript and something else) and all the bots fell behind, 4 bots left, and to hell with them. I used to suffer, track down, set up SIDRAM, ban subnets along with real users. And it turns out everything is simple and even my participation is not required.

Thank you kind man for your advice!

This issue has been discussed on the forums for many years.

It is much more efficient to leave only the necessary countries, and start the rest on js check + for the necessary countries, add to js check the subnet of hosters that are googled.

Some bots are tested, then you can just hang a captcha, they will not break, it will be expensive for them.
