One of the most effective ways 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 many reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses if you notice 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 numerous times. In all of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
