One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
