One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole country. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also avoid the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
