One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people that shouldn't be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. For example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you could limit the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left on your 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 created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also stay away from the prospect of your server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
