In case you notice a big increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you look into the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from places around the world or from other servers, your Internet site is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. These programs go through random Internet sites aiming to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under any article where this kind of an option is provided. The fact is that, that's something rather popular in recent times, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you may 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 website.

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