You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also avoid the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
