Occasionally you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There are spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. This type of things can significantly undermine your projects, simply because no one likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased site 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 IPs which generate the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
