One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that must not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you may restrict the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you shall also prevent the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
