Once in a while you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. This type of things can significantly undermine your projects, because nobody likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your site are real.
