Occasionally you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are a number of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and site traffic. Additionally, there are spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to website articles. This kind of things could drastically undermine your hard work, as nobody likes to visit a website with many hundreds of fake comments, also the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can generate high load on the web server where your website is hosted, which can result in your site not working properly. One of the best solutions in such cases is to block the IP addresses which create the fake traffic, as a way to ensure that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.

You shall not need to do anything complicated if you wish to block an entire network - you will simply have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot shall block the full range from to All blocked IPs shall be listed within the same section, so you'll be able to remove any one of them from the blacklist with simply a click.
