One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people that must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for a whole nation. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

With just several clicks, you will be able to block particular IPs or entire ranges, if necessary.

For an IP range, you only have to omit the last octet or the last two octets of the address depending on the size of the network you want to block. All of the addresses that you've restricted shall be listed in the same section and if you wish to whitelist any of them, you shall be able to do it with simply a click whenever you want.
