One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which should not be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many Internet 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 each of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you will also avoid the chance of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
