Block bot robots.txt

    In the log of some DNN website we see a lot of 404 errors cased by bots visiting the website: semrush, MJ12, etc
    I know you can block (disallow) a bot in the robots.txt but I hoped there's a better way?

    Is there an option within DNN security?

    What can we do?

      Disallow is the better way.
      Some use cloudflare as their preferred method.
      Some use intrusion prevention and/or firewalls.

      But it is not a job for DNN security.
