From time to time you may need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and online traffic. There are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to blog articles. Such things can considerably undermine your hard work, as no one likes to visit a site with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server on which your site is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, in order to be sure that the visits to your website are real.
