One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also prevent the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
