One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which must not be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also steer clear of the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
