One of the most effective ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which should not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for an entire country. You can even block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of 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 shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
