In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your site and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas around 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 attempting to log in to their administrator area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any article where this kind of an option is offered. The fact is that, this is something rather common these days, 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 Internet site in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your site.
