From time to time you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to site articles. This sort of things can greatly undermine your hard work, since no one likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server where your site is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, so as to ensure that the visits to your site are authentic.
