Assuming you mean restrict requests by the "refering" URL (the URL
where the link to your site is), see the last example here:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/env.html#examples
and the accompanying link.

But note that this technique provides no real security, because
the Referer HTTP header is easily faked.
