One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which should not be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do this. As an example, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for an entire country. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
