If you see a large increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you look at the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random sites trying to log in to their admin area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath every article where this kind of an option is made available. However, that is something rather common nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from 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. Obviously, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.
