One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also stay away from the chance of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
