One of the most productive approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that must not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also steer clear of the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
