Some time ago I had registered several domains with new words/terms that did not exist before. When I used these domains for different websites and used matomo tracking in them from the beginning, there were several “direct entry”. There were/are about 50 per month per page. The domains were not yet linked anywhere or known in any way. They were completely new. There were no other entries. For one of the domains I observed this directly. Immediately, not even 10 minutes after I changed the IP in the DNS to the server where the website is located, it started with several “direct entry”. Mainly USA and Baidu. These domains were still unknown to real visitors. But how do the bots get to these domains? They must have some connection to the nameservers? It is a problem because they are not real visitors and they fill the matomo database from the beginning. These bots fill the database constantly. New real visitors have been added, but these bots hits have remained the same. Recently they even have more than 0-1 second time stay (3-5 seconds). They are always “direct entry”. The IPs are always different. Many have a screen resolution of 800x600. Besides these, other bots were added, which are harder to recognize as such.
