One of the most efficient methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. For example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for a whole country. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
