One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which should not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do this. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for an entire country. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also avoid the chance of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
