From time to time you might need to block certain third parties from accessing your sites. There are a lot of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and site traffic. There are also spammers that leave links to shady sites as comments to site articles. Such things could considerably undermine your projects, because nobody likes to visit a website with many fake comments, plus the increased traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server in which your site is hosted, that can result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in this case is to block the IP addresses that produce the fake traffic, as a way to make certain that the visits to your website are legitimate.

No coding abilities are needed, because you will use an intuitive interface - you just have to choose a domain or a subdomain from a drop-down menu and enter the IP address you want to be blocked. You will be able to see all the IP addresses that you have added within the exact same section and whitelisting each of them will take simply a click. If you notice that your website is being flooded by numerous IPs, you will be able to block a whole IP range also. This could be performed by omitting the last number of the address.
