In case you notice a significant increase in the traffic to your website and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other web servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random websites seeking to log in to their administrator area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this type of an option is made available. The fact is that, this is something rather popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you may block them, so the bots will not be able to access your Internet site in any way. Certainly, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your Internet site.
