One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
