    Restrict Admin Access

    Hi, i want to restrict admin access to the admin area of my website.

    I was thinking of whitelisting all the IP addresses that are allowed to access the admin area.

    Is there a service that you can pay for that will allow you to connect through some sort of virtual tunnel, so that you can be guaranteed to have the same IP address regardless of your location, as you will be using the tunnel IP address... not sure if this makes sense... OR maybe you have a better way, thanks in advance...

    I would say that it's most often done via login control, not IP address. I'm not aware of any such IP service as you described, and if there were, that would just mean you'd be using their login system instead of your own.

    1. Buy this: Essential PHP Security
    2. Read it.
    3. What the heck: it's short, so read it again.

    And a Kindle version (at least in the US?): http://www.amazon.com/Essential-PHP-.../dp/B0026OR358 (significantly cheaper, by the way)
