Once in a while you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things can greatly undermine your projects, as no one likes to visit a website with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server where your site is hosted, which can result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your site are legitimate.
