One of the most reliable approaches to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are several good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you could limit the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also avoid the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
