From time to time you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and online traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to questionable websites as comments to site articles. Such things may greatly undermine your projects, as nobody likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the server in which your website is hosted, that can result in your site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
