One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
