Occasionally you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and online traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to blog articles. This sort of things may considerably undermine your projects, because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your site are real.
