One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that should not be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do this. For example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for a whole state. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also avoid the possibility of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
