Occasionally you might need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for example, and generate fake visits and online traffic. There are also spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things can significantly undermine your work, because no one likes to visit a website with many fake comments, furthermore the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the server where your website is hosted, that can result in the site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in such a case is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, as a way to be sure that the visits to your website are authentic.
