One of the most effective approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire nation. You may also block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many Internet 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 each of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also prevent the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
