One of the most efficient methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for a whole nation. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also avoid the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
