One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
