Every now and then you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and online traffic.

This type of things could drastically undermine your projects, because no one likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots may create high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, which could result in the site not working correctly.
