From time to time you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and traffic. There are spammers who leave links to shady websites as comments to website articles. This type of things may considerably undermine your projects, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in the site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, so as to ensure that the visits to your website are real.
