    Many thanks for plugin.

    The plugin description notes

    This is a simple yet solid solution that works great for sites where .htaccess is not available.

    Does this mean that the plugin is redundant where htaccess is available ?

    Could this be explained further this please ?

    Excellent question! I say that because it's optimal to apply security (and other directives) at the server level rather than via PHP or plugin. If you have access to .htaccess (or the Apache config file), I recommend my 5G Blacklist instead of BBQ.
