Find out more about IP blocking, why it could be so advantageous and when to employ it.
One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people which should 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 restrict the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also stay away from the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
