IP based restriction using Nginx

You can restrict access to certain parts of your website using Nginx’s inbuilt authentication and authorization mechanism based either on your client’s I.P, by prompting for a login prompt or both.

A sample I.P. based authorization configuration would be like:

location /private/ {
allow 192.168.1.1/24;
allow 172.16.0.1/16;
allow 127.0.0.1;
deny all;
}
