Restrict WHM/cPanel Access to user folder ~

I want to restrict access to direct folder in WHM, for example I have my website:

samplesite.com


But at the same time if I open
server-whm.com/~samplesite
, I can see the content of my website.

I need to restrict this access to open my website only from the domain.

Answer

You can place this rule as first rule in samplesite/.htaccess:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(www\.)?samplesite\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^ - [F]

This will allow /samplesite/ to be accessed only from samplesite.com
