Thank you for your question about many login attempts to your site. I looked at your site and it seems to be running WordPress. Since WordPress is the most popular software used to build websites, it is a common target for bots.
A large botnet of around 90,000 compromised servers has been attempting to break into WordPress websites by continually trying to guess the username and password to get into the WordPress admin dashboard.
We are proactively protecting our customers to help stop the spread of further attacks. These malicious bots are trying to break into one WordPress site, and then using it as part of the botnet to begin attacking other sites.
I recommend reading our full article on WordPress wp-login.php brute force attack. It explains these attacks in more detail, and provides solutions for protecting your WordPress site.
