One of the most productive ways to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people which should not be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole country. You may also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are too many browser requests from them, if a large 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 scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, in order to be on the safe side. In this way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
