One of the most effective approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. For example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
