One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that should not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for a whole country. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many web 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 any of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably 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. In this way, you shall also avoid the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
