Find out more about IP blocking, why it could be so useful and when to use it.
Every now and then you may need to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a lot of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things could considerably undermine your work, as nobody likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server where your site is hosted, which may result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, in order to make certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
