One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also stay away from the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
