Occasionally you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to website articles. This kind of things can significantly undermine your projects, because no one likes to visit a website with hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not functioning 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 make sure that the visits to your site are legitimate.
