One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that mustn't be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire nation. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also prevent the chance of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
