Reducing Visitors From Other Countries To Lower Cpu Load

I am running the latest version of cs-cart and have a Emergo theme installed on my UK website. My main issue is my current hosting has exceeded the 5% shared hosting allowance.

I have approx. 200 visitors per day to my website however 100 seem to be from Russia where I do not ship or intend to sell too. How can I block these visitors or find out if something else is causing the visitors like a bot?

Also checking my error log I have found this:

mod_fcgid: stderr: PHP Warning: mysqli::query(): MySQL server has gone away in /home/www/ on line 76

Would fixing this error save some useage? I have not optimised my website in anyway.

You can ask your hosting provider to block unwanted counties for your account.

Or use Cloudflare and block unwanted countries from their firewall.

That error says a myqsl server crash, you shouldn't do any fix from cs-cart, is a server side issue.

Probably the server is overloaded (and overselled) and crashed. 200 visitors isn't the number where a server should crash...

I added the list of Russian IP's from

Hopefully i will see a reduction.

My hoster advised to use cache compression. Is this already in cs-cart by default?
