One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that should not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. For example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also avoid the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
