Once in a while you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and website traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to questionable sites as comments to blog articles. This kind of things could considerably undermine your hard work, since nobody likes to visit a site with hundreds of fake comments, not to mention that the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, which may result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs which create the fake traffic, in order to make sure that the visits to your site are legitimate.

You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added inside the very same section and whitelisting each of them will take just a mouse click. If you notice that your Internet site is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range as well. This may be performed by omitting the last number of the address. For instance, if you wish to block all 254 addresses from to, you simply need to enter 1.1.1. and leave the last spot blank .
