One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that must not be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do this. For instance, you may want a particular person not to be able to see your site, or you may limit the access for an entire country. You can also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left in your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you'll also prevent the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
