In your .htaccess file at the VERY TOP, place this:

# The following is IP deadbanning, it redirects if the IP matches
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^11\.111\.111\.111$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^111\.11\.111\.111$
RewriteRule .* [R=301,L]

Of course replace the 1's with the IP Addresses you'd like to use. (And those ones are a fake IP btw)

You may also replace the website as well, if you'd like.

Then if you want to add more, just copy & paste the following line:

"RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^111\.11\.111\.111$"

You want the last line to always be WITHOUT [OR]

Any line above that should contain that [OR] statement for new bans.

Hope this helps.
