Use this to ONLY allow certain IP addresses to access your website.
Deny from all
Allow from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
# Require all denied
# Require ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is your IP. If you replace the last three digits with 0/12 for example, this will specify a range of IPs within the same network, thus saving you the trouble to list all allowed IPs separately. Source
Please see the next rule for the 'opposite' of this rule!
Remember that for most rules you must have the
RewriteEngine on rule in your .htaccess file!!!
Please remember to double check and verify any rules that you use. If you do not understand a rule please consult someone who does. We accept no responsibility for your use of these rules - use them at your own risk. Please get in touch if you want us to add a rule!
