One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you notice 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 numerous times. In any of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
