Every now and then you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and website traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to shady sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may drastically undermine your work, as nobody likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which can result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, so as to ensure that the visits to your website are legitimate.
