One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
