One of the most effective ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also prevent the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
