Every now and then you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to website articles. Such things may considerably undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server in which your website is hosted, which may result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which produce the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
