Once in a while you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things could considerably undermine your projects, as nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the web server on which your site is hosted, which can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
