Once in a while you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. Such things could greatly undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the 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 IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
