One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may restrict the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
