From time to time you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and produce fake visits and traffic. In addition, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious websites as comments to website articles. This type of things may drastically undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit an Internet site with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server on which your website is hosted, which could result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your site are authentic.
