If you notice a big increase in the online traffic to your website and in case after you check the visitor stats it turns out that it comes from areas around the world or from other servers, your Internet site is probably being attacked by an automatic bot. Those pieces of software go through random websites aiming to log in to their administration area through a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments below any article where such an option is offered. The fact is that, this is something quite frequent 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 site in any way. Of course, you'll be able to block IPs even if you allow only people from particular countries to access your site.

To limit the access for an entire network, you must leave one or more octets blank.
