Using .htaccess File to Block IPs

You may block access to your website from specific IP addresses using .htaccess file.
You need to create this file in your public_html folder and add these example lines:

order allow,deny
deny from 127.0.0.1
allow from all

These lines will block access for all users using 127.0.0.1 IP address.

If you need to block a group of IP addresses. use these example lines:

order allow,deny
deny from 127.0.0.1/24
allow from all

These lines will block access for all IP addresses within the 127.0.0.1/24 subnet.
