Find out more about IP blocking, why it could be so beneficial and when to use it.
One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which must not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for a whole nation. You can also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of 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 each of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you will also avoid the chance of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
