One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which shouldn't 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 website, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
