One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals which should not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also avoid the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
