Occasionally you may have to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to blog articles. This type of things can greatly undermine your hard work, simply because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with countless fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server where your Internet site is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.
