If you notice a large increase in the traffic to your website and in case after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random sites attempting to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where such an option is offered. Unfortunately, that's something relatively common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots shall not be able to access your website in any way. Obviously, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
