One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You can also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also avoid the prospect of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
IP Blocking in Website Hosting

accounts. It will allow you to block addresses with only several clicks. No coding skills are needed, since you shall use an intuitive interface - you just need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added inside the same section and whitelisting any of them will take only a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you shall be able to block a whole IP range as well. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address.
