One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also stay away from the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
