One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that must not be able to open it. There are various reasons to do this. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many 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 each of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also avoid the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
