In case you notice a major increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations across the globe or from other web servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random sites attempting to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this kind of an option is available. The fact is that, that's something relatively common these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Naturally, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
