Every now and then you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to site articles. This sort of things can significantly undermine your work, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, which can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your website are legitimate.
