One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that must not be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
