One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which must not be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also prevent the possibility of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
