With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server which deals with the requests to your Internet sites should act in various scenarios. This is a text file with directives that are performed when someone tries to open your website and what happens next depends on the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a specific IP address from opening your website, which means that the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can forward your domain to some other URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You can also use custom error pages or secure any part of your website with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many well-known script-driven apps, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, use an .htaccess file to function properly.
