One of the most effective methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for an entire state. You can even block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
