If you see a big increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations around the world or from other web servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random websites seeking to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this sort of an option is provided. Unfortunately, that's something quite popular lately, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your website in any way. Certainly, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your website.
