In case you notice a significant increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the world or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random websites trying to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any article where this type of an option is provided. Regrettably, this is something rather popular these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Obviously, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your website.
