If you have access to your raw server logs, you should be able to match those up by time(s) and see if they need to be blocked.

If you are unable to see them in cPanel, try looking through your FTP program you use to upload your files.

This is what one line of my logs looks like:

199.16.157.183 - - [31/Dec/2016:00:00:08 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 403 354 "-" "Twitterbot/1.0" 0 0 "off:-:-" 379 11518 192.252.144.23 salineweather.com

Hope this will help to find what you are looking at.

Are you by chance with Go-Daddy?  If so, try going into your FTP program, log in like your going to upload a file and look for a folder called "logs", or its equivalent. If you find the folder, open it. There "should" be some files in there. One possibly listed like "ftp.yourwebsite-ftp_log-etc.gz", the other should list your website name with a -December2016.gz. This is the one you need. If you have that, please download it. You should be able to extract it with the built in Windows extraction or something like Win-Zip, etc.

Once finished, you should have a large file ending in a .txt extension.  I use Notepad++ to look at mine as Notepad doesn't always like the huge .txt files.

Interesting. I don't believe I have ever had a visitor without an IP being listed in my logs.

Do you have an .htaccess file in your websites' root directory? This could help eliminate the extra hits from unknowns, etc.

Think I remember reading that the script doesn't support IPv6. That might be the issue...
