How to block IP using .htaccess file?

You may block access to your website from specific IP addresses using .htaccess file.

You need to create this file in your public_html folder and add these example lines:

order allow,deny
deny from 127.0.0.1
allow from all

These lines will block access for all users using 127.0.0.1 IP address, so you should change the IP to the one you want.
