Occasionally you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to website articles. This sort of things may drastically undermine your hard work, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your website are legitimate.
