From time to time you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and website traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. This sort of things can significantly undermine your hard work, as nobody likes to visit a site with many fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server where your site is hosted, which could result in your site not working correctly. 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 website are real.
