    Hello Jijo ,

    Our sysadmin found out that your site was hit constantly by IP 66.249.65.102 and that was causing high load.
    We have blocked this IP now and your site should be good now.

    It looks like this IP is some google bot - can you tell us if you are using search appliance or something on purpose?

    kind regards,
    Kasia

    Hi Kasia Swiderska,

    Thank you for the update. I have Google Recaptcha enabled but I am not sure if this is causing the issue. Other Google products I have is

    1. Google Tag Manager
    2. Analytics
    3. Google Custom Search

    After blocking the IP so far the site looks fine and nothing seems broken.

    Thank you.

    Hi Jijo,

    I did an IP Lookup with that IP and found that the hostname is crawl-66-249-65-102.googlebot.com . This is unusual.

    I hope the issue won't come back. If it does, please contact us again. We will try to help as much as we can.

    Regards,
    Rupok

    Just noticed that Adsense ads are not loading. I think the IP you guys blocked is related to Adsense. Can you please unblock the IP so that I can check and confirm.

    Edit: Ignore the above, ads are loading fine. Please don't unblock the IP.

Thank NAME, for their help.
