One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many 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 numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also avoid the chance of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
