Discover more about IP blocking, why it can be so beneficial and when to use it.
One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire country. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
