One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for a whole nation. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also prevent the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
