One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for a whole country. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
