Thank you for your feedback!
When you are running a Wordpress site, the wp-admin folder is where the Administrator settings are stored. Limiting access to this folder by IP address can stop something such as a robot (bot) or script from trying to guess your password over and over again. This will help protect your Wordpress installation.
If you haven't already, we'd suggest checking out our article about the WordPress brute force attack that has recently been going on that prompted this article being written.
In this tutorial we will show you how to allow access to the wp-admin folder by IP address, which will protect your Wordpress installation. This can be accomplished by adding a rule to the .htaccess file.
You will need to know your IP address, so that you can 'allow' it. If you do not know your IP address, here is a link to an article on how to find it.
deny from all
# Whitelist IP #1
allow from 22.214.171.1242
# Whitelist IP #2
allow from 126.96.36.1993
# Whitelist IP #3
allow from 188.8.131.524
Congratulations, now you know how to protect your Wordpress admin area by allowing access to the wp-admin folder by IP address!
