What does the "0/24" in deny from 126.96.36.199/24 refer to, please, and how would I make this cover 188.8.131.52?

Got it - thanks. Was googling forward slashes which really didn't help. *hit self with mallet*

It already does. That's what .0/24 means. You can also say
Deny from 23.244.230
omitting the last sector. (Only in IPv4! IPv6 behaves differently.)

Thanks Lucy. This notation is proving useful. I have one of those natty 'most popular pages' things but it is being usurped by ridiculous traffic from China bots to one seriously obscure page. Solved now, I think.
