There are numerous reasons why you should do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many Internet 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 numerous times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also prevent the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
