One of the most efficient ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for an entire country. You can even block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many 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, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also stay away from the possibility of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
