Once in a while you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to site articles. This type of things could significantly undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which could result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your website are authentic.
