One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also avoid the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
