One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that should not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire nation. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also prevent the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
