One of the most reliable ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of individuals that mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous reasons to do this. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your Internet site, or you can restrict the access for a whole nation. You can 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 in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In each of these scenarios, the traffic is almost certainly fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any questionable IP address, so as to be on the safe side. That way, you will also stay away from the chance of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

In case you would like to whitelist an IP at some point, you'll be able to unblock it with a click from the same section.
