From time to time you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers that leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things may drastically undermine your hard work, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server where your site is hosted, that can result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
