In case you notice a considerable increase in the traffic to your website and if after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from locations across the globe or from other servers, your website is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites attempting to log in to their admin area by using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any sort of article where this sort of an option is offered. Regrettably, this is something relatively popular these days, but if you know the IP addresses through which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots will be unable to access your Internet site in any way. Of course, you are able to block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your Internet site.

You shall be able to see all the IP addresses that you've added in the same section and whitelisting any of them will take only a click. If you notice that your site is being flooded by various IPs, you'll be able to block a whole IP range as well. This could be completed by omitting the last number of the address.
