One of the most effective methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for a whole nation. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you will also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
