One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
