One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also avoid the chance of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
