One of the most reliable methods to restrict the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals that shouldn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. As an example, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you can restrict the access for a whole country.

In any of these cases, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. Thus, you shall also avoid the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by many fake requests.
