One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also prevent the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
