One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do this. 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 nation. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also avoid the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
