If you see a considerable increase in the online traffic to your site and in case after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas across the globe or from other servers, your website is most likely being attacked by an automatic bot.

However, this is something relatively popular nowadays, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Naturally, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.
