One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. For example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for an entire nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also stay away from the chance of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
