One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which mustn't be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for a whole country. You can even block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
