One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for a whole country. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are way too many Internet 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 more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
