Every now and then you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things may significantly undermine your work, because nobody likes to visit a site with many fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server where your site is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your website are real.
