I tried to use the following .htaccess file  and ftp it into my public_html root directory.
=================================.htaccess file =============
# -FrontPage-
ErrorDocument 404 /blank.html
<Limit GET POST>
order deny,allow
deny from 63.238.185.242
allow from all
</Limit>
<Limit PUT DELETE>
order deny,allow
deny from all
</Limit>
=====================================
But it doesnt work any way even I reboot my VPS server.
