Occasionally you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things could considerably undermine your hard work, as nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
