One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that must not be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times.

This way, you will also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
