IP Witelist for a web domain

Hi. let’s say I have a website: example.com which, for security reasons, I only want to allow access to a small handful of people. They’ll give me their public IP addresses and I’ll add them to a white list.

Can anyone advise if there’s a wayto do this in Hestia? Maybe there’s a way to do this int he DNS records? All my research points to blacklisting some IP addresses on the server’s firewall, I not only want to create a whitelist (not a black list) but I want it only for one domain/DNS zone on the server, not the entire server.

Many thanks

.htaccess allow deny from ip. For examples please refer to google.

Didn’t know .htaccess could be used to do things like that. Thanks, I’ll give it a try

Great, it worked. Thanks for the help. I inserted the following to my .htaccess file:

#Start Whitelist
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from
#End Whitelist
