One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that should not be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the chance of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
