Restrict by IP address
You can use .htaccess to ban or allow access to your web site by IP address.
Valid IP Addresses
IP addresses are in the form xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and each of these four numbers is from 0-255.
You can enter partial addresses to restrict larger blocks of addresses:
|18.104.22.168||Blocks one specific IP address|
|1.2.3.||Blocks IP address in the range 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 (ie.. 1.2.3.xxx)|
|1.2.||Blocks IP address in the range 1.2.xxx.xxx|
|1.2||Blocks IP address in the range 1.2xx.xxx.xxx|
Your IP address is 188.8.131.52
Be careful when blocking blocks of IPs as you might be blocking legitimate traffic!
