One of the most reliable approaches to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these situations, 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. Thus, you'll also avoid the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
