One of the most productive approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that mustn't be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also stay away from the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
