With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server which manages the requests to your web sites have to act in different occasions. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your website and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you could block a specific IP address from accessing the site, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server will redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use personalized error pages or shield any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven applications, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to operate correctly.
