One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that should not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
