How does all this work if I am not the server administrator for my site? I use a hosting company with virtual hosting on an apache server on a linux box. Is it a matter of using .htaccess? In the comments of the first article, ironclad suggests using a mod_rewrite and CGI to record the spiderts IP address immediately. If I don't have access to the server's config files, can I still use these techniques?
