One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those which shouldn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
