One of the most productive approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people that must not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for an entire country. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also stay away from the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
