One of the most efficient methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also steer clear of the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

Each of the addresses that you've restricted shall be listed in the same exact section and if you would like to whitelist any of them, you will be able to do it with just a mouse click at any time.
