If you see a major increase in the online traffic to your website and if after you check the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from areas around the world or from other servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random sites trying 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 type of an option is offered. Unfortunately, that's something relatively common these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you can block them, so the bots won't be able to access your Internet site in any way. Certainly, you may block IPs even if you allow only people from specific countries to access your site.
