Every now and then you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and site traffic. There are spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to website articles. This type of things can considerably undermine your projects, as nobody likes to visit a website with many fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server where your site is hosted, that could result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your site are real.
