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 site traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to blog articles. Such things could drastically undermine your hard work, as no one likes to visit a site with countless fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server in which your website is hosted, that can result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
