One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
