One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that should not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for a whole nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most probably 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. Thus, you'll also avoid the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

You shall not have to do anything challenging if you want to block a whole network - you'll just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs shall be listed within the same exact section, so you shall be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with just a click.
