Blocking users by IP – A Comprehensive guide to htaccess
Blocking users by IP. In my previous post, we have seen how to block a site file Prevent viewing of file with htaccess – A Comprehensive guide to htaccess
Here I will show you how to block or allow with IP.
order allow,deny deny from 188.8.131.52 deny from 012.34.5. allow from all
You can deny access based upon IP address or an IP block. The above blocks access to the site from 184.108.40.206, and from any subdomain under the IP block 012.34.5. (012.34.5.1, 012.34.5.2, 012.34.5.3, etc.) I have yet to find a useful application of this, maybe if there is a site scraping your content you can block them, who knows.
