In case you notice a large increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries all over the world or from other servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random Internet sites seeking to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this sort of an option is available. Unfortunately, this is something rather common in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots won't be able to access your website in any way. Obviously, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your Internet site.
