Occasionally you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things could considerably undermine your projects, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which produce the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
