In case you notice a considerable increase in the online traffic to your site and if after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from countries around the world or from other servers, your site is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those programs go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments beneath any article where this kind of an option is provided. The fact is that, this is something quite popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will not be able to access your site in any way. Naturally, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.
