One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that should not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the chance of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
