Occasionally you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. This sort of things can considerably undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server on which your site is hosted, that could result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your website are authentic.
