One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.

You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added inside the very same section and whitelisting any of them shall take simply a click.
