One of the most effective methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which mustn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any 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, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also stay away from the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
