Once in a while you may have to block certain third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to shady websites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may drastically undermine your projects, since nobody likes to visit a website with countless fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots could generate high load on the server where your website is hosted, which could result in the site not working properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your site are real.

No coding skills are required, since you will use an intuitive interface - you simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address that you would like to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses which you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them shall take only a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by various IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range as well. This may be completed by omitting the last number of the address.
