The fact is that, this is something relatively frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your site in any way. Obviously, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your website.
IP Blocking in Cloud Web Hosting
