One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also prevent the chance of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
