One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also prevent the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
