One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people which mustn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You can also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also stay away from the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
