From time to time you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to site articles. This kind of things could significantly undermine your work, since no one likes to visit a site with many fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server on which your site is hosted, which can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, so as to make sure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
