One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
