Every now and then you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to suspicious websites as comments to site articles. This sort of things can considerably undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit a website with many fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server in which your Internet site is hosted, which can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your site are legitimate.
