How to restrict directory access by IP address?
restrict directory access by IP address of Website
In order to secure your admin area from hackers, we recommended you to allow access only from your selected IP to your admin directory. You just need to create an .htaccess file in the directory where you want to restrict access by IP Address of Website.
For example, if you have a WordPress blog installed on your main directory like example.com/wp-admin, you should create an .htaccess file in /wp-admin/.htaccess and you should put this code in, and not forget to replace the allowed IP address with your IP address of Website.
deny from all
allow from YOUR-IP-ADDRESS-HERE
(Replace “Your-IP-Address-Here” text with your IP Address of Website)
You can test this by accessing your /wp-admin IP address from another IP address which is not allowed by your .htaccess file.
