One of the most productive approaches to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of those which should not be able to open it. There are several reasons to do this. As an illustration, you may want a certain individual not to be able to see your site, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left within your Internet sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, so as to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also prevent the possibility of your server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
