One of the most effective methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the people which mustn't be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a certain person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for an entire state. You may also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many web 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 numerous times. In each of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you can safely block any suspicious IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also prevent the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.
