With an .htaccess file, you will define how the web server which addresses the requests to your Internet sites should act in a variety of occasions. This is a text file with directives that are executed when an individual tries to open your site and what happens next will depend on the content of the file. As an illustration, you can block a specific IP address from opening the site, therefore the server will decline the visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server may redirect the visitor to the new web address. You could also use customized error pages or protect any part of your site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many popular script-driven applications, including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, use an .htaccess file to work correctly.
