Find out more about IP blocking, just what it indicates and just how and when it’s best to utilize it.
One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many web 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 numerous times. In each of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
