Every now and then you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things can significantly undermine your hard work, as no one likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the server on which your site is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
