One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that must not be able to open it. There are many good reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for an entire nation. You could also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In any of these situations, the traffic is most probably fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also avoid the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
