One of the most efficient methods to restrict the access to your site is to block the IP addresses of the people which shouldn't be able to open it. There are various good reasons to do that. For example, you may want a specific person not to be able to see your site, or you may restrict the access for an entire state. You can also block IP addresses if you notice that there are lots of browser requests from them, if a large number of spam comments are left in your websites or if a script login page has been loaded a lot of times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is most probably fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you could safely block any shady IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you will also stay away from the possibility of your hosting server getting overloaded by too many fake requests.
