Every now and then you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to website articles. This sort of things may greatly undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
