Once in a while you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. Such things can significantly undermine your projects, since no one likes to visit an Internet site with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server where your website is hosted, which could result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your website are real.
