Once in a while you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and online traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. Such things can drastically undermine your work, simply because nobody likes to visit a website with countless 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 site is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your website are real.
