From time to time you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. This kind of things can significantly undermine your work, because nobody likes to visit a site with many fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server on which your website is hosted, which could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
