From time to time you may need to block particular third parties from accessing your websites. There are plenty of automatic bots which crawl the Internet, for example, and create fake visits and online traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to questionable sites as comments to blog articles. This type of things may considerably undermine your work, as no one likes to visit a website with many fake comments, not to mention that the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots can create high load on the web server in which your Internet site is hosted, which can result in your site not functioning properly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IP addresses that generate the fake traffic, so as to be sure that the visits to your Internet site are authentic.

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