Occasionally you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to website articles. Such things could drastically undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit a website with countless fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in the site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your site are real.
