One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for an entire nation. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could 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 too many fake requests.

No coding abilities are required, since you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and type the IP address that you'd like to be blocked. You'll be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added in the same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a click.
