Occasionally you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot 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 websites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may considerably undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which may result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
