Occasionally you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers that leave links to suspicious sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things may considerably undermine your work, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, which may result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your website are legitimate.
