One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those which should not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
