From time to time you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to site articles. Such things may greatly undermine your projects, as nobody likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server on which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
