Discover more about IP blocking, why it could be so beneficial and when to use it.
Every now and then you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to suspicious Internet sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things could significantly undermine your hard work, because no one likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, furthermore the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server where your website is hosted, which may result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to make sure that the visits to your site are real.
