One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites 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 generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also stay away from the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
