Every now and then you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things may drastically undermine your work, since nobody likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server on which your website is hosted, that can result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your website are authentic.
