One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that should not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also prevent the chance of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
