Are the requests counted towards the limit of 5000/hr, even if the IP is blocked?
We have 5,000 requests per hour (Reference).
So let’s say that some IP addresses are causing too much load on the server by putting so many requests and I block them through the Digital Ocean Cloud Firewall, but it does not mean that those IPs will stop sending the requests. So now after they are blocked, are those requests still be counted towards the 5000 requests per hour limit?
