One of the most efficient approaches to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that must not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also prevent the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
