One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also steer clear of the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
