From time to time you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and site traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. This kind of things can drastically undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, so as to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are real.
