One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do this. For example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

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