In case you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your Internet site and if after you examine the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places across the globe or from other servers, your site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such programs go through random websites looking to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where this kind of an option is made available. The fact is that, that is something rather 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. Naturally, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.
