How to Protect WordPress from Attacks with .htaccess plugin?
Posted on 2014-02-23
Some of my wordpress sites have been attacked by brute-force attacks. The hosting company put in an .htaccess file and limited access to the wp-login.php file to only specific IP addresses.
I was previously using a plugin called "limit login attempts", but this plugin still results in server overload during an attack.
Question: Are there plugins available today that will EASILY modify the .htaccess files so that only specified IP addresses will have access to the admin panel? I have several WordPress sites that I either administer directly for my clients, or my clients assume that I will keep them protected while they administer the site, so I want to keep this as easy as possible - both for me and the client.
