One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that must not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could restrict the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also stay away from the chance of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
