What's IP blocking and what does it mean for website visitors? When is it handy?
One of the most effective methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you could limit the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
