One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also prevent the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
