From time to time you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may drastically undermine your projects, because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your site are legitimate.
