Once in a while you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. This type of things may greatly undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server in which your website is hosted, which may result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your Internet site are real.
