From time to time you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things can drastically undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, which could result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
