Block Wordpress Admin By IP

WordPress security is a massive problem, because of WordPress being such a popular blogging platform it is used by millions of sites around the world. If someone is able to get access to your Admin area then they will be able to do anything on your site including deleting posts, changing passwords or shutting down your entire site.

It’s always essential that you do as much as you can to tighten up security to your admin area.

Here is example of using htaccess which will block access to your admin area by anyone which is not using a certain IP address.

I've got a plugin called Limit Login Attempts which helps against brute force attacks it will block certain IPs after a couple of login attempts you should have a look might be useful.

From using this plugin you also get to see what type of usernames they are trying when trying to get access. Most of them are admin so it's important to remove this user as soon as you install Wordpress.
