Discover more about IP blocking, just what it signifies and how and when it’s best to utilize it.
Once in a while you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable Internet sites as comments to site articles.

Among the most effective solutions in such cases is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your site are real.
