htaccess and visitorinvasion.com

    I have noticed in awstats that visitorinvasion.com was referring traffic to my site from:

    http://visitorinvasion.com/autohit.php

    As far as I know, I haven't contacted them anytime to direct traffic to my site or for that matter any autohit generating scheme.

    I am trying to block them using .htaccess

    My question is, is this correct block of code for that:

    
    <Limit GET HEAD POST>
    order allow,deny
    deny from visitorinvasion.com
    allow from all
    </LIMIT>
    
    PHP:
    Thanks in advance.

    Is that the referrer or the actual domain hitting your site? If it's the referrer, it's not effective to try and block because referrers can be faked, but if it's the actual domain hitting your site, then you can block it by domain or IP using the method you listed.

    Thanks for the reply. It is actually the referrer from awstats.

    I don't understand why they are directing traffic to my site.
