One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which should not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
