One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also stay away from the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
