From time to time you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to shady websites as comments to website articles. Such things can greatly undermine your projects, since no one likes to visit a site with tons of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server in which your website is hosted, that could result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your website are real.
