One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for a whole country. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also prevent the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
