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 a .htaccess file in the directory where you want to restrict access by IP Address.


For example, if you have a WordPress blog installed on your main directory like, you should create a .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.

order deny, allow
deny from all


(Replace “Your-IP-Address-Here” text with your IP Address)


You can test this by accessing your /wp-admin IP address from another IP address which is not allowed by your .htaccess file.
