One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
