Occasionally you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to shady websites as comments to website articles. This type of things may considerably undermine your work, simply because no one likes to visit a site with many fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server where your site is hosted, which could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your website are authentic.
