One of the most efficient approaches to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people that should not be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your site, or you can limit the access for a whole nation. You may also block IP addresses if you discover that there are too many Internet browser requests from them, if a lot of spam comments are left on your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a large number of times. In all of these cases, the traffic is most probably fake and has been created by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any suspicious IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you'll also steer clear of the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by way too many fake requests.

You could block entire IP ranges through the tool as well - you just need to leave one or two octets from the address blank.
