One of the most reliable approaches to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
