One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many 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 numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
