One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do this. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also stay away from the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
