If you see a large increase in the online traffic to your website and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other web servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath every article where such an option is provided. Unfortunately, that's something relatively popular these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you could block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Needless to say, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.
