Once in a while you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable websites as comments to website articles. This type of things may greatly undermine your projects, simply because no one likes to visit a website with hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server where your site is hosted, which may result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IPs that produce the fake traffic, in order to be certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.
