How do I block access to my site?

Allowing or denying access to individuals or groups

It is possible to block access to your website from either specific IP addresses, a range of addresses, or an entire domain. This is done by creating or modifying a .htaccess file in the root folder of your website to match one of the following formats:

For a specific IP address:

order allow, deny
allow all
deny 169.254.333.236

169.254.333.263 will be unable to view the website. For a range of IP addresses:

order allow, deny
allow all
deny 169.254.333

This will prevent any IPs starting with 169.254.333 from viewing the website, such as 169.254.333.1, 169.254.333.2, etc. For a domain:

order allow, deny
allow all
deny *.spamserv.com

Nobody trying to connecting from spamserv.com will be able to view the website.
