One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire country. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created 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 prevent the chance of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
