One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which must not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
