One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
