    The IP hit my site 16,759 times in an hour today and GoDaddy suspended my hosting, because you know - that's My Fault.

    Is there away to deny/block an IP which attempts to view X amount of pages a minute?
    Example if views 20 pages it's blocked for a day.

    They were likely hammering your site with login attempts...

    Try this plugin:

    Also, when site is up, make sure to scan it - they may have been successful.

    Thanks, I know about the Brute Force Attack. I'm sure that's what's happening.
    I am already using Limit Login Attempts. It is blocking the attempts.
    The site has been scanned, it has not been hacked.

    It's been hit 16,759 times by the IP - which I have blocked and GoDaddy is reinstating my account, but it will happen again with a different IP and around in circles we go.

    So how to I stop an IP from making thousands of requests an hour?
    How do I block an IP after, let's say 20 page views?

    Ask GoDaddy it's their server...
