With an .htaccess file, you can define how the web server that addresses the requests to your Internet sites must act in various cases. This is a text file with directives that are carried out when someone 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, and the server will decline your visitor’s request, or you can redirect your domain to another URL, so the server may direct the visitor to the new web address. You may also use custom error pages or protect any part of your Internet site with a password, if you place an .htaccess file inside the correct folder. Many widely used script-driven apps, like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, use an .htaccess file to work properly.
