One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which mustn't be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many browser requests from them, if many 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 cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also stay away from the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
