What is IP blocking and what does it mean for site visitors? When is it handy?
Occasionally you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may greatly undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, also the increased traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which can result in your site not functioning properly. Among the most effective solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, in order to ensure that the visits to your website are authentic.
