Once in a while you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things could drastically undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a website with countless fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, which can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are real.
