Every now and then you might need 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 traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to website articles. Such things may considerably undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit a website with many fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your website are authentic.
