Here is how you can ban the access of certain IPs to your website using .htaccess:

Create an .htaccess file in the folder of your subdomain/domain and add the following lines to it (or add the lines to your existing .htaccess file):

Code:
order allow,deny
deny from 127.0.0.1
allow from all


Of course you should replace 127.0.0.1 with the IP that you want to ban.

If you want to ban more than one IP, just add a new line:

Code:
deny from 127.0.0.2


If you want to ban a whole IP range like this:

Code:
deny from 127.0.0


This will refuse access for any user with an address in the 127.0.0.0 to 127.0.0.255 range.

Nice, glad to see 100webspace has enabled more .htaccess support :)

Using mod_rewrite is awesome, I am going to use it for my site when I re-code it (Hopefully this summer) :)

Greetings,

There are also a lot more then just banning IP addresses and directory index redirects to an .htaccess code. Here is one other small little tip that I do.

404 Error Document
- Create a .htaccess file, and insert the following code:
Code:
ErrorDocument 404 whatever/blah.php


- Now, change the whatever/blah.php to the file name of your 404 Error Page.
- This will code will make it so that if any user goes to a non-existing page, they will be redirected to your 404 error doc.
- I suggest doing this because having your 404 Error Document set in your SubDomain Manager located in your CPanel, sometimes causes errors within your site. I have experienced these errors, and it really sucks.

I hope this may help some other people too. :D

There is A LOT more you can do with .ht* files. I will post some more examples later.
