In case you notice a large increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random websites looking to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this kind of an option is made available. Unfortunately, this is something quite popular these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
