One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
