One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do that. For example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In each of these cases, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also stay away from the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
