Once in a while you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to site articles. This type of things may greatly undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, not to mention that the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server on which your site is hosted, which may result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your website are authentic.
