I recently put a new website online on a .com domain. It is not advertised, and the number of "real" users is basically zero. It is secured via cloudflare. Since linked with the .com domain, the number of requests is very high despite the 91 unique visitors (data point every hour):
As a result, my sessions database is huge and I need to clean it every day.
Are such stats typical on a newly registered domain, and is there something to do about it?
