One of the most reliable ways to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which must not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do this. For instance, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for a whole state. You can also block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also stay away from the chance of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
