block all IPs except your own

Hey guys, I got a little question.
Is it possible to set up your server to accept no root access with the exception of one IP? Or one subnet?

I know it sounds dumb, but it can solve lots of problems.

Thank you in advance.

Most people just disable root login via ssh entirely.

Disable Root Log In For Better Security
