Once in a while you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to blog articles. Such things could drastically undermine your work, since nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server on which your website is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which produce the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
