One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which should not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also stay away from the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
