In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your website and if after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries across the globe or from other web servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random Internet sites seeking to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this kind of an option is made available. Regrettably, that is something relatively frequent nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Needless to say, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
