If you see a large increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations all over the world or from other servers, your site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random sites aiming to log in to their admin area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below every article where this type of an option is made available. However, this is something relatively frequent in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots won't be able to access your website in any way. Of course, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.
