One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do that. As an example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for a whole country. You can also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many web browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
