One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are lots of Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also stay away from the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
