One of the most effective ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which must not be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for an entire country. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you'll also steer clear of the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
