One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the people that should 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 restrict the access for an entire nation. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

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