One of the most effective approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people which should not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for a whole state. You can even block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In any of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the chance of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
