Once in a while you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. This type of things can greatly undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server where your website is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which generate the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your site are authentic.
