One of the most reliable approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also avoid the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
