One of the most productive methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of individuals that should not be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do that. For example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your Internet site, or you may limit the access for an entire state. You could also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many Internet 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 many times.

Thus, you shall also stay away from the prospect of your server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.
