If you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your website and in case after you examine the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the globe or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random websites looking to log in to their administrator area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where this kind of an option is made available. However, this is something rather frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Of course, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.
