Find out more about IP blocking, what it really signifies and how and when it’s best to utilize it.
From time to time you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and traffic. In addition, there are spammers who leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. This type of things could greatly undermine your work, as nobody likes to visit an Internet site with tons of fake comments, furthermore the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, which may result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which produce the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your website are real.
