One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which must not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many 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 a lot of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you shall also stay away from the possibility of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
