    Although I use Bad behavior, I notice that Bad behavior accept and log certain hosts (servers and not robots) that browse the entire of my website (archives, category, tag, posts, feed...) too faster to be an human.
    Once I saw this, I put the IP address into my htaccess file to ban it, but is there a way to block automaticaly a host after a certain number of requests (per minute/hour) ?

    For exemple : If the host did more than 15 GET request to my website, I want to block for an hour/day.

    I found weblabyrinth, but I'm looking for a WordPress Plug-in.

    Internet says this is possible by configuring Apache.
    If it's the case, I can't do this because of my web provider don't allow this kind of configuration to webmasters.
