One of the most efficient methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on 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 generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also avoid the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
