From time to time you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. This type of things can considerably undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, that could result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your site are authentic.
