Every now and then you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and online traffic. There are spammers that leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things could drastically undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, that can result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
