One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do that. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also stay away from the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
