Every now and then you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to site articles. This type of things may drastically undermine your hard work, simply because nobody likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, which may result in your site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your website are legitimate.
