With an .htaccess file, you can define how the web server that addresses the requests to your websites must act in a variety of cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when somebody tries to open your Internet site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an example, you may block a particular IP address from accessing the site, therefore the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain name to a different URL, so the server will direct the visitor to the new web address. Also you can use custom error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many widespread script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
