Once in a while you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to site articles. Such things can drastically undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your site are legitimate.
