One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses if you notice that there are too many browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also avoid the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
