One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of 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 produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
