One of the most reliable approaches 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 numerous good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you could limit the access for an entire nation. You can even block IP addresses if you detect that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if a huge number of spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these situations, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you will also stay away from the prospect of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
