Every now and then you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things could drastically undermine your projects, as no one likes to visit a website with countless fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are real.
