One of the most effective approaches to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also prevent the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
