One of the most productive ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also avoid the chance of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
