Occasionally you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. Such things may considerably undermine your work, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that can 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, so as to make certain that the visits to your site are legitimate.
