Once in a while you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers that leave links to suspicious sites as comments to blog articles. Such things could significantly undermine your projects, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server on which your website is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this 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.
