One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of 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.

This way, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
