One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which should not be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for a whole state. You can even block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also stay away from the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
