One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your Internet site is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are many reasons to do that. As an illustration, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your site, or you can restrict the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses in case you discover that there are too many web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In any of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. This way, you'll also stay away from the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
