One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also avoid the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
