One of the most reliable methods to limit the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of those which mustn't be able to open it. There are many reasons why you should do this. As an example, you may want a specific individual not to be able to see your website, or you can limit the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are lots of web browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded numerous times. In all of these situations, the traffic is more than likely fake and has been generated by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, in order to be on the safe side. This way, you shall also stay away from the possibility of your web server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.

The interface is incredibly simple - choose the needed domain or subdomain from a drop-down list, then type the IP address that you'd like to block and save the change. All of the addresses you have blacklisted shall appear inside the same section of the CP, allowing you to always remove any one of them and enable it to access your Internet site again. You can block whole IP ranges via the tool also - you just need to leave 1 or 2 octets from the address blank. For example, entering 1.2.3. will block all 254 IPs from 1.2.3.1 to 1.2.3.255.
