Occasionally you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and online traffic. There are spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things could drastically undermine your projects, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server where your site is hosted, which can result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
