One of the most effective ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons why you should do this. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also prevent the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
