One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for a whole country. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also prevent the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
