One of the most productive approaches to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are several reasons why you should do this. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are too many browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times.

This way, you'll also avoid the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
