With an .htaccess file, you shall determine how the server that manages the requests to your Internet sites have to act in various 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. For instance, you can block a particular IP address from opening the site, so the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain name to some other URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or shield any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file in the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
