Every now and then you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your websites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers that leave links to suspicious sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things could drastically undermine your hard work, because nobody likes to visit a website with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, which can result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IP addresses that create the fake traffic, so as to be certain that the visits to your site are authentic.
