Morning, I recently moved to self-hosting and I'm constantly hitting my bandwidth limit. My service provider can't understand it but I think it's because I'm getting a ridiculous amount of spam comments pending (like 300 a day). I have installed Askimet and I constantly delete the comments but now, this morning, it's crashed my site.
I have contacted my service provider in the hopes that he'll be able to do something (because I can't even log on) but does anyone have any advice as to how to avoid the ridiculous amount of spam coming in? Thanks!
