One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not 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 can limit the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also prevent the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
