Once in a while you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to blog articles. Such things could drastically undermine your hard work, as nobody likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, that could result in the site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
