One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do this. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you will also stay away from the chance of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
