One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that mustn't be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do this. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you could limit the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly 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. In this way, you'll also stay away from the possibility of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
