Can I block certain IP addresses from seeing my website?

Applies to: Grid System

Yes, you can block certain IP addresses from accessing your site by using a Deny directive in an .htaccess file.

Apache's documentation explains how to do this:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_access.html
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/howto/auth.html

For example, if you put the following .htaccess file in a directory, then it would operate on all directories beneath it:

Deny from 192.168.72.2
Deny From 192.168.55

The 1st Deny directive would block the exact IP address 192.168.72.2. The 2nd Deny directive would block all IP addresses fitting the pattern 192.168.55, including 192.168.55.1, 192.168.55.2, 192.168.55.254, etc.
