One of the most reliable approaches to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which must not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of 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 each of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also avoid the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
