    Hello
    This site uses WordPress.com Stats - and "magically" have had ca 5000+ hits a day the last few days, compared to ca 1000, which used to be normal. Nothing special has happened to explain this.
    What could be wrong? What could I do?

    appriciate all help :)

    It happens on certain occasions. Does your site have anything sports and games related?

    it could be DDoS, just check the visitors log from your hosting cPanel account (awstats or webstats etc and check the visitors IP Address).

    Usually there are repeated visits, with 5-10 seconds delay and have no user agent.

    ddos = distributed denial of services, the ip address does not need to exact match.

    but usually, they in same class.

    Hard to read but i think it's ddos. and usually ddos ony last for few hours. As long your web is not getting down or suspended, it's not a big deal i think.

    Im not sure what to do with this. If it is an attack it should probably be stopped right?

    any tips?

    Can you post your site URL so that someone will try to locate if it is an attack, infection, etc?

    On the first tests, I do not find any symptoms of DDoS or any attacks. Can you visit your Google Analytics account and take a screen shot of your visitors' graph and post it here (you may blank out your account number)?

    Also check the URLs getting the maximum hits. Is there a deviation from the URLs visited the most in the past?

    This page does not have a google analytics account I think.
    the frontpage gets the most hits, it is a deviation: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/18601138/Bilde88.png

    Go to your Google analytics account and click on the tab country/ territory and note down at least the top ten countries.

    Do you have a Google Analytics account? You cannot find your data if you do not have one. If you start one today it will have data from today. From that you can easily analyze the countries you are getting visitors from, the URLs that get the maximum hits, and several other metrics.

    ok, ill start it.
    but is that all I can do?

    What do you think this could be?

    I have a google analytics account, but this specific website is not registered in it.

    You can get some info here too.

    Anyway, I do not find anything showing DDos anything like that anywhere. If you have Google AdSense account, that also will show daily hits. Also try to find out using Google Webmaster tools, if you have accounts for this domain. You can also use several other tools.

    In any case, I will recommend seeking your host's support too.

    I don't find any other ideas.

    Good Luck!
