One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also prevent the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
