One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for a whole nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also stay away from the chance of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
