In case you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other servers, your Internet site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random Internet sites looking to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where such an option is provided. Unfortunately, that is something quite 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 Internet site in any way. Obviously, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.
