Once in a while you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to blog articles. Such things can drastically undermine your work, as nobody likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server in which your site is hosted, which may result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, so as to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
