One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
