Once in a while you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things may significantly undermine your work, simply because no one likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your site are real.
