One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
