If you see a big increase in the traffic to your website and if after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries across the globe or from other web servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These pieces of software go through random sites aiming to log in to their administration area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments underneath any sort of article where this kind of an option is available. However, that's something relatively common in recent times, 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 site in any way. Obviously, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your website.
