One of the most productive methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those that shouldn't be able to open it. There are various reasons why you should do that.

You could also block IP addresses in case you detect that there are way too many browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In each of these cases, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. This way, you will also steer clear of the possibility of your server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
