One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also stay away from the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
