Once in a while you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things could drastically undermine your projects, as nobody likes to visit a website with many fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the server on which your site is hosted, which may result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that generate the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your site are real.
