Once in a while you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to site articles. This type of things could considerably undermine your projects, as nobody likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which produce the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your website are authentic.
